In September 2015, nine students from four different colleges participated in Writing Wrongs’ inaugural event. They interviewed people at the Opportunity House in Reading, Pennsylvania. They created a website and a print edition on the issue of homelessness.
In September 2016, seven students from six different colleges explored the issue of addiction at Easy Does It, Inc. drug and alcohol transitional housing facility in Leesport, Pennsylvania.
They also created a website, and their book, “Addiction: Stories of Hope,” is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other booksellers worldwide. The students worked with the intent of sharing strength, encouragement, and inspiration to others struggling with addiction and recovery. All proceeds from book sales support Writing Wrongs journalism projects.
The local newspaper, The Reading Eagle, wrote a news article about the event.
