Inspired by Edwidge Danticat’s sentiment, “Create dangerously for people who read dangerously,” this workshop will foster community with those who dare to write and tell the stories that must be told. Over the course of the workshop, we will engage in exercises to get more familiar with our own voices and how to tap into them. This will be a generative space which means you will leave with more writing and questions than you came into it with!
