Influencing the issues that matter to you is your life's goal, right? In this four-part workshop series, business and environmental author, Ciree Linsenman, guides you through the process of harnessing, organizing and transforming your ideas into powerful words that can touch thousands. This non-fiction, creative journalism, memoir-style process will leave you a better writer and provide a place to go with your punch.
About the class
Each class is an intense 2.5 hours, held at rotating venues in the central Twin Cities area, complete with beverages, light snacks and handouts. Class topics include: Purpose, Training, Venues and Form, and Markets and Marketing (see full description below).
Cost for all four classes is $120. Ten percent of profits go to Compassionate Action for Animals' (CAA) advocacy programs.
Ciree Linsenman's writing credits include several books for Entrepreneur Media's Start Your Own series, which guide blooming entrepreneurs. Her advocacy writing has supported many activist groups and she continues to write fiction, for sheer pleasure.
For kicks she educates budding vegans on how to cook and eat decadently, does a bit of catering, lots of biking, and runs around in the woods with her family.
Time: July 27, 2011 from 6:15 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.

CAA's very own Dave Rolsky will be presenting at the July EarthSave Potluck.
Being an activist is a noble calling, but there's more to be an activist than just "doing stuff". You need to have a strategy for helping animals. What are your goals? What obstacles stand in your way? How can you best overcome those obstacles?
At Compassionate Action for Animals, our underlying strategy is deeply shaped by Strategic Nonviolence. Strategic Nonviolence draws from the lessons of past struggles, notably the civil rights movement and the Indian independence movement. It covers the different paths towards success, the power dynamics inherent in every struggle for social justice, and finally provides a set of clear goals for success.
From that analysis, CAA draws a set of principles that shape our strategy towards total animal liberation.
Dave Rolsky will give a presentation on CAA's strategy at the July 17th EarthSave potluck.
Time: Jul 17, 2011 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Location: Lake Harriet United Methodist Church, 4901 Chowen Avenue South Minneapolis, MN 55410 [
RSVP on Meetup. RSVPs are optional, so feel free to just show up.
When we contemplate the future, we see a world where factory farms no longer exist. Animals are treated with kindness, compassion, and respect, rather than as tools or machines. But we can't reach this future without your help.
At Compassionate Action for Animals, your donations support our efforts to reach out to the public and educate them about the horrors of modern factory farming. Your support lets us continue our leaflet distribution, video showings, and food giveaways, as well as our many other outreach, education, and community-building activities.
Please consider signing up for a recurring donation. If just a small fraction of the people on this list signed up to give a mere $10 per month, we could give out free vegan samples to tens of thousands of people! If you can't give on a recurring basis, please consider a one time gift of $50 or $25 today.
