A full-day forum to explore current understandings and practices of writing is planned at the University of Manitoba on Saturday.
“Writing for Social Justice and Human Rights” was inspired by the National Writing Project and will be carried by U of M language and literacy education professors.
Two morning sessions will include children’s and young adult book authors and literacy scholars Alma Flor Ada and Isabel Campoy. Interactive workshop sessions in the afternoon will include teaching human rights through writing, oral storytelling and digital media and crafting compelling letters to the editor.
