Survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence will conclude the academic year by expressing themselves through their original poems, storytelling and music at a free public reading set Thursday, April 27.
The Lavinia Project will conduct a year-end reading at 6:30 p.m. April 27 at Just Love Coffee, 129 E. MTCS Road in Murfreesboro.
“The Lavinia Project is an expressive writing workshop group and community literacy project comprising survivors of sexual and/or domestic violence along with their witnesses and allies,” said Matthew Brown, a lecturer in the MTSU Department of English.
Brown started the Lavinia Project with an MTSU student after conducting workshops at a local women’s and children’s crisis center.
A published poet, Brown also is the co-founder of Writers’ Corps, a group of student-veterans who publish their personal expressions in an annual literary magazine called DMZ.
