The #MidwestHungerIs project will be providing weekly writing prompts, featuring organizations, and providing hunger facts in order to inspire you to question, ponder, and write. These weekly posts will be available on our webpage www.midwesthungeris.org, our Facebook page, and Twitter feed. The writing submissions from community members that are produced from live writing events and online submission will be collected and assembled into an anthology. Several of these writings will be used as texts for choral music compositions to be performed in the community and recorded. The proceeds from the sale of the recordings and anthology will be invested back into future community composing. Be sure to keep an eye out for details about revision workshops in March and May!
The Writing Center at Michigan State University is facilitating a community composing project that centers around questions of hunger in the midwest. To get involved in our project, we encourage you to come to our events and to submit to our anthology. All members of the community are welcome!
