When we teach workshops, we listen.

 

And while that’s a great start, we then teach participants to listen to their voice, trust what they have to say, and write their truth.

OUR MISSION: HMS is committed to teaching creative storytelling and writing skills to divested Chicago-area adults and to publishing these stories—alongside established writers—online and in print.
