EVERY DAY I LIVE, I STRIVE, Sarabande Writing Labs, Vol. IX
This hand-bound anthology features original work by young writers in Sarabande Writing Labs' summer 2017 session held in partnership with Louisville Metro Youth Detention Services and taught by author and community health researcher Tasha Golden.
We're pleased to offer this free digital supplement to accompany Every Day I Live, I Strive. The supplement contains sixteen additional poems written by this program's participants.
About this partnership: Workshops taught by author and health researcher Tasha Golden were held with seven young women on site at Louisville Metro Youth Detention Services. Tasha Golden has been working since 2012 to support the ideas, recommendations, and strengths of incarcerated girls. She has published peer-reviewed research regarding gender/intersectional inequities in the juvenile justice system, and includes the voices of incarcerated girls in her work; she also connects arts programming with community involvement, civic engagement, and policy influence.
Our anthologies are lovingly handmade by volunteers and given to all Sarabande Writing Labs participants free of charge. Proceeds from anthology sales support the continuation of the program.
Sarabande Writing Labs is an arts education program promoting writers in under-resourced communities through writing workshops and literary events.
