Non-Profit Provides Safe Space for Brooklyn Writers
In the world of traditional publishing, it can be difficult for newcomers to find a place for their work. Without influence and a large social media following, the voices of unknown writers are often silenced. Aaron Zimmerman has been trying to change that. As the Founder and Executive Director of the New York Writers Coalition, Zimmerman wants to encourage the writer in everyone.
After facilitating a poetry writing workshop in a residence for homeless and low-income working people, he saw the need to give a voice to a community of writers that is seldom heard.
