Writer’s Bloc Literary Journal
Undergraduates Rahul Desai (’10) and Julia Woodward (’10) established Writer’s Bloc literary journal with the intent of providing CPEP students with an outlet for their talents and the campus population a lens to their counterparts’ vision and abilities. Recipients of Cornell’s Robinson-Appel Humanitarian Award, CPEP volunteers Rahul and Esther Kwan (’11) made it possible to continue publication of Writer’s Bloc in the 2010-2011 academic year by channeling accompanying funds to this CPEP project. Esther and Adina Rubin-Budick ’13 established the eponymous Writer’s Bloc student organization on campus to promote incarcerated peoples’ self-expression and to educate the general population about incarceration. In the Fall of 2013 Shane Kalb became president of Writer’s Bloc. In the Fall of 2014 Owen Lee-Park ’15 became editor of Writer’s Bloc. Check out the archive of issues here.
