No matter how you came into this pandemic, you are likely leaving it differently. To navigate change, one of the most powerful tools at your disposal is effective communication. But you don’t have to be a “writer” to be able to develop and hone your voice and write effectively.

Maybe you’re writing for yourself to help better understand the new things you’ve learned in quarantine. Maybe your perspective has changed listening to the stories of others during this summer’s racial reconciliation. And maybe you have an idea or you’ve experienced something personally significant that needs to be heard by others.

Remember back in the spring when we were planning an in-person writing workshop and then the world shut down and we canceled and now we’re all changed forever?

Well, let’s try this again.

We are partnering with Javacia Harris Bowser of See Jane Write to host two virtual writing workshops to help develop your personal writing voice.

Javacia will lead two free virtual workshops with Reckon|Women about the best practices of essay writing and the nitty gritty of honing your personal writing voice. It just so happens we are looking for more essays to publish here and in the Reckon|Women newsletter. So if you end up liking what you’ve come up with, we’d love to work with you to get your piece publishing ready.

Click here to sign up for the Tuesday, Sept. 15 workshop at noon. Then join us again on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m. to get some feedback on your work.
