First To Go Writing Workshop
The First To Go Writing Community Workshop is a forum where students collaborate with one another and receive professional and peer support as they write their personal narratives. Participants are invited to share their work with the university community at the annual Spring Writers Showcase, and completed narratives are published in LMU's First-Gen Voices: Creative and Critical Narratives on the First-Generation College Experience. Participants may receive 1-unit of academic credit upon completion of the seminar.
The First To Go Writing Workshop is facilitated by First To Go professional staff mentor, Ms. Johana Hernandez, LMU School of Film and Television. For more information, contact us at FirstToGo@lmu.edu or (310) 338-7677.
