Write Whole – Survivors Write
Eight Monday evenings, beginning August 10, 2009.
This workshop series is open to all women survivors of sexual trauma!
Transform your relationship with your writing -- and with yourself.
In this workshop, write in response to exercises chosen to elicit deep-heart writing, and deal with such subjects as: body image, family/community, sexuality, dreams, love, faith, and more. We create new art and new beauty out of the difficult and complicated realities of our lives. You'll be encouraged to trust the flow of your own writing, and receive immediate feedback about the power of your words!
All workshops held in an accessible, downtown San Francisco office, near Powell Street and Market - close to Bart & Muni.
Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required.
Fee for 8 weeks is $250.

Note: These workshops are open to individuals who identify on the woman/female spectrum and who also self-define as survivors of sexual trauma. Categorizations of gender can be highly problematic and I believe that both "women" and "survivor" are self-defined! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you're wondering whether you should attend or not.
