Writing Wrongs is a literary journalism program that illuminates the inequity in our society through the power of the pen and the lens. By telling the stories of those directly involved, Writing Wrongs offers a different and often-ignored perspective that challenges stereotypes and prejudices.
College students who are accepted into the annual program spend Labor Day weekend at a specific location and immerse themselves in a specific societal issue. They perform interviews, take pictures and videos, manage and update our social media, update our website with their own section, and ultimately design a print file that is then published. The goal of raising awareness is accomplished by donating the student-created book to local and regional public and college libraries and relevant organizations. The book is also distributed world-wide through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other book sellers.
