Empowerment day 2013: Creative writing

In 2013, we gathered a group of homeless men for a picnic and a creative writing workshop in Columbus Circle, NYC. We distributed journals that volunteers had decorated with words of encouragement throughout the pages. The goal was to invite the men to share their stories, express their feelings, and find healing in the art of writing. Together we wrote and shared our first entries. Some were heartfelt, some were funny, and some were introspective. It was a great time and a beautiful process.
