Free Minds Presents an Evening with the Upstairs Writers & Class of 2014

April 13, 2014 @ 12:00 am – 2:00 am

Join us for a reading and celebration as participants of the Free Minds writing workshop and students of the Class of 2014 share their original works of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction.

Free Minds

Members of the Free Minds writing workshop meet over the course of 8 weeks to produce and share writing in a supportive group environment. These workshops are founded on the principle that each person has a unique and powerful voice which deserves to be heard. Our spring workshop has been led by Mary Lavallee, an MFA candidate in UT’s Department of English and an instructor of literature and writing. Students in the Free Minds Class of 2014 will share excerpts from personal narratives, developed with guidance from Project Director Vivé Griffith, poet and graduate of UT’s Michener Center for writers. All are welcome to attend!

Free Minds is a collaboration between Foundation Communities, UT Austin, and ACC which offers educational and creative opportunities to adults who have faced barriers to higher education.
