La Phoenikera Writers’ Guild offers programming that promotes intergenerational and intercultural dialogue outside of the university setting. LaPWG strives to offer a safe space for all individuals in order to improve written, oral, and visual literacies in the Phoenix area. All classes, special events, and workshops are designed to engage participants in a larger dialogue about current events through the examination of classic and contemporary literature. Instructors introduce critical thought for novice and professional writers of all ages, creating a forum for participants to develop and expand their work beyond the walls of laPWG.
Through these endeavors, laPWG seeks to help local writers master various levels of craft, become contributing voices in the community, engage in social activism, publish their work, and develop teaching and writing partnerships within the greater Phoenix area.
