Lake Fellowship welcomes friend of the fellowship Lisa Wersal for her virtual program about writing Letters to the Editor as a form of social activism. From Lisa:
Mother Teresa once described her work this way: "I'm a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.” We UUers are likewise committed and impassioned to harness love's power to challenge exclusion and oppression, to elevate public conversations, and be a force for good. One way to help shape public discourse around key issues of our time is to contribute letters-to-the-editor. Come get useful tips to guide your writing process. Got an opinion? Get it published!
Lisa Wersal taught academic writing to university students, and has been a writer of academic articles, essays, opinion pieces, poetry, and many letters-to-the-editor. She contributes letters regularly to the StarTribune, Pioneer Press, and Vadnais/White Bear Press.
Today's meeting is via Zoom, and co-hosted by Lake Fellowship members Kristin Fulkerson and Terry McGlynn. You can join the group starting at 10:15 a.m. and the program will begin at 10:30.
