Event Description:

Join four talented writers—Philip Gulley, Diana Ensign, Amber Stearns, and Barbara Shoup—as they explore the power of words to spark compassion, dialogue, and positive change.

Words are powerful! Written language imparts knowledge, shapes thoughts, spurs ideas, and provokes action. Words inspire, uplift, and motivate. Misused, words can be a tool for manipulation or bullying. It matters how we use them. Do our words create positive change in the world? Do our words send waves of fear and anger? Or do our words unify? This panel presentation will examine the power of words and will ask attendees to answer in writing, “How have you been inspired to use your words to create change?” Selected responses will be published in NUVO.

Prior to the panel discussion and after the discussion enjoy music by classically trained guitarist Michelle Qureshi

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 10

Presented by Indianapolis First Friends Meeting, Indiana Writers Center, author Diana Ensign, and NUVO.
