“Writing” Relationship Wrongs: A Teen Writing Workshop to Explore Relationship Dynamics


February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM) and HopeWorks’ Youth Leadership Project is honoring it by hosting a writing workshop in March to help their peers & adults in their life reflect and explore healthy relationships, love, and dating. Dating violence is more common than people think, especially among teens and young adults: one in three teens in the US will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults, and nearly half (43%) of college women report experiencing violent or abusive dating behaviors. This TDVAM, join HopeWorks’ Youth Leaders as they reflect upon the elements of the many relationships that surround us.

This workshop will be held virtually and is open to the general public, ages 13 and up.

How It Works

  • After you register, you will receive a confirmation email containing the link to join the event on Zoom. We will also provide a phone number and password if you want to call-in instead.
  • You are not required to create a Zoom account or install special software to attend. You can use any computer to join via the link, or call-in from any mobile or landline phone. (It’s recommended that you have a reliable internet connection or cell phone service!)
  • At the time of the event, just click the link or call-in!


Our goal is to make virtual events as accessible as possible, however we are still learning how to use Zoom ourselves. The chat box feature will be available during this event. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have the option for closed captioning during live events. If you have any specific questions, concerns, or suggestions about access please contact Victoria Rain at vrain@hopeworksofhc.org and MC Carey at mcarey@hopeworksofhc.org.
