Free Speech in Kansas: Community Writing Workshops

As part of the special Pulitzer initiative, Kansas nonprofits can invite trained instructors to facilitate writing workshops in their communities. Just as William Allen White defended free speech “by voice, by posted card, by letter, or by press,” participants are welcome to express themselves through essays, poems, letters to the editor, memoirs, fiction—any way they so choose. Writing workshops are available as program funding allows.
