What students are saying

“I learned about writers; perspectives and their reasons to create. I learned how to create a zine. I learned about publishing and its infrastructure. I learned a little more about my own values.”

“I am eternally grateful for this community that I got. The instructors and students were both really really supportive and I loved how this was a safe space for self-expression.”

“I learned to ground my poetry in a moment. This advice has made me more conscious about the world around me.”
