EPA Hosts Live Webinar on Writing about Racial Healing

Race, Grace and Forgiveness? Can We Write Our Way to Racial Healing? This was the subject of a candid and interactive exploration of how writers of every background can help heal racial wounds by writing truthfully about our racial struggles and journeys. What’s required? How does one start? What narrative and spiritual elements make a “racial” story work for both writer, editor, and reader?

The live, one-hour webinar was presented via Zoom on Thursday, June 18, 2020 by Patricia Raybon. 120 attended the live event.
