AMPLIFIED - #OwnVoices (Ages 14-18)
Who does a story belong to? Do you have the right to speak from the voice of a culture that isn’t yours? Is it even your story to tell? In this workshop, we’ll discuss and learn about how writers navigate the waters of cultural misappropriation versus cultural representation, American Dirt controversy, and campaigns like #WeNeedDiverseBooks and #OwnVoices.

AMPLIFIED is an intensive creative writing experience just for teens.

**To prevent unwanted guests, the login link will be sent to registered participants on the morning of the workshop. If you have questions about your registration or the workshop itself, please email: wins@penfaulkner.org
