NYU PEP is a proud sponsor of the L.I.T. writing group.
Lives in Transition (L.I.T.) is a NYC based Creative Writing Group made up of individuals who have experiences and/or concerns with the incarceration and criminal justice systems in the U.S.. The group is led by NYC based writer Hannah Buonaguro.
The group started in October of 2016 at NYU, and is still growing and changing. The group meets weekly and provides a space that encourages community and dialogue. Secondly, it encourages and facilitates writing. Everyone writes from their unique perspective and in their own style—without any restrictions regarding form. What emerges from this process includes poetry, poetic prose, short story, personal essay, and stream-of-consciousness narratives.
