MY ROLE: Writing Workshop Teaching Assistant (Volunteer)
CLASS SPONSOR: New York Writers Coalition and Visions Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The NY Writers Coalition is a community-based creative writing nonprofit that provides free and low-cost writing workshops across New York City including libraries, parks, prisons, shelters, and other public and private spaces and organizations.
In the Winter of 2016, I assisted as a volunteer to NYWC's creative writing workshops for blind and visually impaired seniors at Visions Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Manhattan. I worked alongside the workshop leader and provided feedback, technical assistance, reading aloud of participants' stories, and 1-on-1 writing support.
