New Workshop: Writing About Diversity

This writing workshop takes the difficult and abstract topic of diversity and tolerance and helps students to express themselves on the topic and then to create a few short, powerful quotes on the subject. These quotes can be combined with other efforts (using artwork, for example) to celebrate diversity and prevent bullying in a school system.

“Producing a short, memorable quote is basically the same thing as writing a poem,” says Amy. “It requires the writer to take a complex, abstract, idea and reduce it to a few words.”

Amy developed the workshop at the request of a Kennedy Center for the Arts partner in Sarasota, Florida, in conjunction with the international 2011 Embracing Our Differences Exhibit which is held there each year. It is available as a Professional Development or as a student Writing Workshop.
