Community Cultivating Creativity

istock 4122060

Green Windows' mission:
To provide creative writing workshops offering growth, healing, empowerment, self-discovery, and community to diverse writers, prioritizing those needing the most support including low-literacy, low-income, and at-risk youth and adults.

Green Windows' vision:

With the firm belief that art and creativity are vital to social justice, Green Windows would like to partner with community organizations to demonstrate the essential role literary art can play in increasing literacy, bringing diverse people together, and giving a voice to the voiceless.
