To Whom It May Concern: Writing For A Cause says
With every new day, it seems there's something new to translate into writing: if it's not about gun violence, it's about homelessness. If it's not about homelessness, it's about police brutality. If it's not about police brutality, it's about women's health.

As writers, we're specially equipped to convey relevant anecdotes, emotions, and ideas related to the things we believe in — especially when we come together to discuss how best to do so.

On Jan. 26, Hugo House will provide a space for this very thing. You can:

- Hear brief readings of creative writing on social change from Charles Mudede, Litsa Dremousis, and Jennie Shortridge.

- Sit down in the Cabaret with fellow writers to discuss the issues along with gurus Mudede, Dremousis, Shortridge, and more.
Spend some time writing creatively on any topic you believe in. Check out Matthew Olzmann's poem about gun violence, "Letter Beginning with Two Lines by Czesław Miłosz," as an example.

Let's use creative writing for social change! (P.S. The event is free, and the bar will be open.)
