NEW IN February 2018! WORDS IN ACTION THIRD THURSDAY DROP-IN
The Cabin is proud to offer a second free monthly writing drop-in! Starting in February of 2018 and on the third Thursday of each month, WORDS IN ACTION will pair local activists and a cabin teaching-writer to write, think, and talk about social justice issues. The community activist will talk about the role of writing in their work for the first half. During the second half a Cabin teaching-writer will lead participants in a creative writing prompt in dialogue with the activist’s areas of interest.
On Feb. 15th from 6:30-8 here at The Cabin Francisco Salinas, Boise State University Director for Student Diversity and Inclusion, and Cabin teaching-writer Danny Stewart kick things off. Don’t miss it! Free and open to the public
