The Mighty Pen | Upcoming Events & Opportunities!

THE MIGHTY PEN has several upcoming events & opportunities for students, faculty & staff that we would like to share! The Mighty Pen amplifies the voices of racialized and underrepresented writers and creators. Coordinated by the Writing & Learning Centre and led by Phoebe Wang, the group provides a platform for students who self-identify as Black, Indigenous and as People of Colour at OCAD University to centre themselves and to collaborate.
