Founded in July 2009, the Grit Uplifted Creative Writing Group is an open forum for learning, self-expression and the building of trust and community for people that are homeless, at risk of being homeless, or have experienced homelessness.
The purpose of this blog is to serve as a venue through which the Grit Uplifted writers can share their work, their ideas and their experiences, and we welcome and encourage you to provide the writers with positive, thoughtful comments and constructive criticism to help them develop and grow as writers. (On our blog/website, this can be done through the “Leave a comment” link at the bottom of each post or by using the “Submit Writing” feature on the top menu.)
Ultimately, we would also like for this webpage to serve as a forum where we can have a dialogue about the issues, ideas and experiences the writers present and the feelings they evoke.
In addition, we will use this site to post any schedule changes for the group, relevant links or upcoming events involving the group.
