The WGI, in partnership with United We Dream
, the largest youth-led immigrant community in the U.S, has held writing workshops for immigrant youth.
UWD participants come to New York from all over the country to participate in two weekends where they explore self-expression and storytelling in all its forms.
With professional writing mentors, these exceptional and passionate and young people are encouraged to tell their compelling stories.
“…this workshop gave me the opportunity to explore liberation through writing. I found a new sense of freedom, and wrote about personal, social and daily experiences…I learned about liberation and the power that writing has. I shared my experience with my cohort and it brought me comfort.”
