Writing Wrongs is a literary journalism program that illuminates the inequity in our society through the power of the pen and the lens. By telling the stories of those directly involved, Writing Wrongs offers a different and often-ignored perspective that challenges stereotypes and prejudices.

In this edition, members of the LGBTQ+ community share their stories.

College students who are accepted into the annual program spend Labor Day weekend at a specific location and immerse themselves in a specific social issue. They interview local community members, take pictures and videos, update our social media, and ultimately design a print file for publication. The goal of raising awareness is accomplished by donating the student-created book to local and regional public and college libraries and relevant organizations.
