WORKER WRITERS SCHOOL COLLABORATION

The Worker Writers School facilitates poetry workshops and global poetry dialogues for the Ed Factory's Teacher's Institutes teachers, their students, and students' families. 

Worker Writers is an institute founded and directed by poet Mark Nowak, an Ed Factory consultant; it organizes and facilitates poetry workshops with global trade unions, workers’ centers, and other progressive labor organizations. These workshops create a space for participants to re-imagine their working lives, nurture new literary voices directly from the global working class, and produce new tactics and imagine new futures for working class social change. Worker Writers has run workshops with organizations as varied as Domestic Workers United (DWU) in New York City, the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) in Port Elizabeth and Pretoria, Justice for Domestic Workers (J4DW) in London, and the Indonesian Migrant Workers Union (IMWU-NL) in Amsterdam and The Hague. For the past five years, Worker Writers has facilitated annual workshops for the PEN World Voices Festival.
