Writing Arizona: A Words on Wheels Series

Project: Research project

Description

Writing Arizona will shed light on the ways in which the humanities are at the core of our shared efforts to think boldly and write persuasively about the issues and histories that continue to shape our communities here in Arizona and will do so by focusing intentionally on the cultures, peoples, and histories of Arizona. This program will be comprised of six workshops that feature seminar-style discussions of and writing about Arizona culture, history, communities and landscape. Each workshop will feature a team that includes an expert writer/facilitator and a small group of university and community college faculty workshop facilitators. Community participants will be in a supportive and collaborative writing and learning environment and will have access to workshop support and coaching from the workshop facilitators. At the end of the six-workshop cycle, participants will be invited to have the work they produced included in a digital volume curated by the program director.
