Creative writing teacher Zoe Mullery and former San Quentin News staffer Watani Stiner are teaming up to start a creative writing class. The class will meet on Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Canticle Farm community in Oakland.
The workshop is open to all formerly incarcerated writers, but space is limited. While all formerly incarcerated writers are welcome, the focus will be on those recently released. Those writers will find support and encouragement during their reentry transition through their participation in the class.
Zoe has been teaching creative writing through the Arts-in-Corrections Prison Arts Project, sponsored by the William James Association, since 1997. She has also been serving as instructor in the Brothers in Pen creative writing class at San Quentin since 1999.
Watani has been a member of Brothers in Pen since 2003. He was continuously involved in the group until his parole in 2015. His memoir is in the final stages of editing and will soon be ready for publication.
