Collaborative workshops and writers' peer groups hadn't been invented when I was young.  They're a wonderful invention.  They put the writer into a community of people all working at the same art, the kind of group musicians and painters and dancers have always had.  - Ursula K. Le Guin

Project 1:1000 Sessions are a resource for both EducatorsSocial Justice causes, companies, or community members at-large.

Great care has been taken to ensure as much privacy as individuals and groups desire.  See Privacy & Basics here.

Project 1:1000 Sessions provide what are essentially structured, mentored, affirming, writing/accountability groups.  The simplest and greatest outcomes are as such:

  • The "boogeyman" is taken out of writing
  • Individuals and groups are able to speak their own truths, to tell and share their own stories
  • The notion of community is created and developed, both within and among other groups

In addition to the obvious focus on reading and writing proficiency for students, Sessions illuminate and enhance accountability, interpersonal communication, sense of community, collaboration, and exposure to multiple backgrounds and perspectives.  All sessions encourage and foster creative expression, discipline, honesty, bravery, kindness, empathy, and tolerance.  Project 1:1000 Sessions especially provide participants both a way and a place to work and play and learn and shine right now, discovering and honing numerous skills that provide for more luminous futures.

While Project 1:1000 is at its heart unconcerned with either analysis, critique, or perfection (your stories are your stories), a Session will explore a bit of the approach to - and process and casual critique of - writing and editing.  Optionally, the Project 1:1000 Team Member could communicate issues with structure, grammar, and clarity of expression to the Client (Teacher, Leader, etc).  Please note that while Sessions are not a substitute for regular English classes, they may well provide alternative/additional settings and approaches more conducive to free, encouraged, and affirmed expression.

Sessions will be lead by Team Members, who shall be good and passionate people and facilitators, educated and experienced writers with a background in education training and/or arts collaboration and production.  See the Project 1:1000 Session Leaders here.  If you are (or know someone who might be) interested in joining the Team, see (or share the link) here.
