In May Term 2015, students in Scott Whiddon’s and my “Writing for/with Nonprofits” class paired up with the Community Action Council for Lexington-Fayette, Bourbon, Harrison and Nicholas Counties to produce a variety of print-based texts, website materials or social media plans, and videos. In the process, we attended the training for some of the CAC’s Senior Corps volunteers and visited several of the Senior Corps’ worksites, such as local community gardens, food pantries, the Veteran’s Hospital, and two Head Start locations.

-- Donna Haraway
“Education must begin with the solution of the teacher-student contradiction, by reconciling the poles of the contradiction so that both are simultaneously students and teachers.”
-- Paulo Freire
"Writing is feminist machinery, and play is one of its gears."
