About the Workshop:

As writer’s we know that every character has their own unique set of aspirations, goals and personality. But those exist within a larger context. Every generation has its own set of expectations, shaping experiences, relationship with technology and ways of interacting that are norms among that cohort. 

Marketers study these to hone messages to sell products and services. As authors we can use this information to shape realistic conflicts and build authentic multi-generational relationships among our characters. We’ll cover each of the generations living today—what experiences shaped them, what makes them unique, how their values conflict with other generations.

It’s up to YOU, America by Neetu

It’s up to You, America

here we stand
not one Nation under God

fragmented under
a heaving flag
weighted down
by broken parts

shredded by knives
with rusted edges
blunted, yet sharp
in grievances

old cracks and ignorance
faulted lines below
the glossy glaze
held together
are now frayed

here we are
back in time
rolling in dismal strife
wondering how we got to this
at a loss for a healing fix

as in all things we have learned
there’s seldom a road to permanence

each generation carves its path
this one’s up to us, America.
