The Narrator is the blog of  NY Writers Coalition (NYWC), an organization which provides free creative writing workshops throughout New York City for people from groups that have been historically deprived of voice in our society. The Narrator focuses on topics important to the NYWC community of writers and activists, such as race and gender equality, education and prison reform, LGBT issues, homelessness, rights of the disabled, veterans’ issues and immigrants’ rights.

Each week, The Narrator features art and literary reviews, a profile of a social activist, inspirational ideas for writers, and original creative writing prompts to use on your own or while writing in groups. Like NYWC, The Narrator encourages voice and equality for all. Contributors to The Narrator are workshop leaders and other members of the NYWC community, as well as invited guest bloggers.
