After prepping some former and current sex workers’ writing skills through the RedUP’s Becoming Writers Workshop, the RedUP group is ready to celebrate their graduation as writers who can now articulate their own stories for the world to read. This is the first of a two night event, the second which will take place in January 2013, but you won’t want to miss out.
Former sex worker/teacher and current RedUP alum, Melissa Petro, will be hosting the Pros(e) Anthology Release Party as the first Becoming Writers Workshop Alumni share their stories. Participants will include Dominick, Essence Revealed, Veronica Vera and Aimee Herman. Also, copies of the first Pros(e) Anthology issue will be available to purchase and take home during the event.
You must be 21 and over to attend and the event is absolutely FREE.
