Workshops will take place during the winter months, and include a meal and opportunities to write together as well as access individual writing coaching with Dr. Jones. The group will create a chapbook and host a public performance in the Spring of 2024. Winter Writers in Residence is a collaboration between:
UCIMC, a community media and arts center.
Meadow Jones PhD, literary artist and trauma expert who hosts transformative workshop series. www.meadowjones.com
Cunningham Township, a public office providing housing, food, & income assistance with case management.
