When I’m Not Writing: I Read

Yours truly circa 2012

Today’s prompt of this month’s blogging challenge involves sharing something that you do when you’re not writing.

One thing that I do when I’m not writing, is reading the work of others. For this brief note, I’ll share with you 10 of the latest posts from selected writers in my Blogroll.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
