Recap: ‘Share Your Voice!’ Workshop Goes Bicoastal

If there’s a silver lining to the pandemic that has kept Exposition Review from gathering in person as a staff and for events, it’s that we’ve found new ways to connect that have expanded our community like never before.

For the second year in a row, our “Share Your Voice!” publishing workshop was held online, enabling our editors not only to log on from as far away as San Francisco, Chicago, and Arkansas, but to invite participants from both coasts.

Not only does it help emerging authors develop their skills and receive invaluable mentorship, but given that Exposition Review is an all-female editorial team, we also love WriteGirl’s emphasis on empowering young women. Every year they work with over 500 girls throughout Los Angeles, and since their launch 2001, they have seen a remarkable 100% (yes 100%) of WriteGirls go to college.
