As a bestselling author, Eric knew he could and should do more to help the youth in Kansas City as sales for Jedediah began to take off. He says this about the origins of the workshop: “I gave birth to this program in South Kansas City. My first participants were Crips and Bloods. It wasn’t the differences that brought them together, it was the pain. Watching them write for me made me realize this one thing …writing could actually, literally, set them free.”
