All levels of experience are welcome.
Speak Up: Writing and Speaking Our Lives – ONLINE WORKSHOP
In this 2-evening writing workshop, participants will develop and explore personal and public voice in a safe, supportive environment. Our words (in poetry, prose, micro-memoir) will be used to understand who we are and how we got here. Through both written and spoken word, we’ll explore the paths we have taken in our lives, as well as the ones we didn’t take. All ages welcome and no writing experience is necessary. Just bring your creativity and an open mind!
