Creating a worskhop for single mothers/ advice?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im creating a writing workshop for single mothers. I will make a publication of their work at the end.

I'm a single mom myself, and i am part of a growing art orginization in my town. here is the class description

"Kids and babies are welcome. This is an ongoing drop-in group workshop focused on our experiences but also can be any writing at all. What letters do you wish you had time to write the governor? To the food stamps office? To WIC? What story do you have to tell? This is a chance to use writing, collage, journal excerpts, etc., with a goal of remaining pro-active and positive while still honest and creative. Publication planned."


I am seeking sponsorship and funding for it, so that these women don't have to pay. I need to know what kind of class structure will be the most appealing and beneficial. does the above sound like something you would want to do? I am setting it up so its a drop in type of thing, so the women dont have to worry about missing a class. Its a weekly thing that goes several weeks, but i was wondering if it might be better to do a full-day workshop with food and, and a sponsored art activity, snacks, and distraction for the kids. We have two largish rooms situated right next to each other and I would make it so that flowing in and out of the room is absolutly OK.

Any other feedback? Any ideas on large organizations that would help fund this project?

Thanks in advance!

Oh that sounds amazing!! I would think a full day thing with childcare, and easy in and out flow would be cool. I would love to be able to go hang out with a bunch of other single mamas for a day of good writing, discussion, and food.

oh, and would you take online submissions too?
