Virtual Write Night: April 22

Free Minds is hosting our next virtual On the Same Page: Write Night, on April 22, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm EST!

With the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever it is crucial that Free Minds members are able to share their voices and know they are not alone. While COVID-19 might have put a halt to our daily lives, we will not let it halt our monthly Write Night. On April 22, we will host our inaugural Virtual Write Night through Miro. It’s the same process, just virtual. All you need is a computer or tablet and an internet connection.

For a quick tutorial on how to use Miro, watch this video:

A Few Tips:

  • There is a sidebar on the screen with all of the tools you will need.
  • Use the “T” for “text” to add a comment on one of the poems–just click on the “T” then click wherever you want to type your message!
  • You can change the font, color, and size of your text.
  • All of your edits will save automatically.
  • Don’t be afraid to mess up! There is an undo button if you make a mistake.
  • Address the author by their first name and sign off using your first name.
  • Remember that this is not a grammar class. We are here to encourage and thank the author for sharing their work. Look for ways to connect with the poems–a favorite line, something you could relate to, or something that made you think.
  • Still have questions? There is a chat button on the bottom of the screen and staff will be online from 7:00-8:30 pm to assist you in any way they can. You can also call us at 202-795-9657.
