Authentic Voice: A Writing Workshop

Join us for a writing workshop with writer, photographer, scholar, and former Wisconsin Poet Laureate Kimberly M. Blaeser presented in conjunction with the NEA Big Read: Indigenous Stories.

Since November, Illinois Humanities has partnered with book stores and non-profit organizations to support free statewide book groups and public conversations around the experiences and stories of Native people in North America.

This workshop, in collaboration with the Center for Native Futures, will engage emerging writers in the process of developing their own authentic, creative voices.
