CultureWork: July 2009. Vol. 13, No. 3.

The act of writing is experienced by many of us in the arts and culture sector on a daily basis. From marketing materials and grant proposals to script writing and composition we are constantly exposed to the process of creative and formal writing. In our summer issue of CultureWork: A Periodic Broadside for Arts and Culture Workers, Jennifer Furl discusses how community writing organizations, through writing workshops and reading events, allow participants to share personal and fictional narratives and to “experience the joy of artistic self-expression.” These workshops serve as forums for creating that “magic ingredient” with the audience, giving the greater community a window to our experiences on stage, in the music hall, or at the opening night of the exhibit. Additionally, the workshops and reading events also serve as a model for fostering more direct community engagement within the non-profits sector.
