We are seeking Black people and people of color to share their life experiences.

Writing Wrong’s mission is to raise awareness about social issues through the stories of those affected. The students who participate in the program are competitively selected through an application process. The majority of this year’s group has personal experience with racism. They are highly talented activists with a desire to create change. Everyone who assists with the Writing Wrongs program is an ally. If you choose to participate, you will be welcomed into a safe space.

Your story will be included in the student-created book as Writing Wrongs’ mission to raise awareness about social issues. Before submitting this form, please read the information for interviewees. After submitting the form, you should receive an automated email response. Please check your spam or junk email folder. If our email was directed there, mark it as “not spam” to ensure that we can reach you by email.

If you have experienced microaggressions and/or other forms of racism, your story may include that, since Writing Wrongs’ mission is to raise awareness about these social issues. However, your story will not focus solely on the trauma you’ve experienced but will include other aspects of your life.
