Print Friendly

One of the most fundamental tools for engaging people to change the world is the written word. Flyers, pamphlets, articles and books are an indispensable means for activists and organizers to share and disseminate ideas. So, how we write is an important skill and some ways of writing better resonate with broader audiences than other ways.

Join IPS for the unique opportunity to discuss how to reach wider audiences with three (3) award winning and progressive authors.

  • Adam Hochschild, author of Bury the Chains: Prophets and Rebels in the Fight to Free an Empire’s Slaves; and To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918.
  • Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America; and Bright-sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America.
  • E. Ethelbert Miller, IPS Board Chair and author of The 5th Inning; and Fathering Words: The Making of an African American Writer.

The discussion will be moderated by John Cavanagh, IPS Director.
