~ Write Whole: Survivors Write ~
A writing workshop for women survivors of sexual trauma
Eight Monday evenings: Spring '10 workshop begins April 12
Transform your relationship with your writing -- and with yourself.
No previous writing experience necessary: Open to folks of all writing abilities!
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! This workshop is open to all women who identify in some way as survivors of sexual trauma; both "women" and "survivor" are self-defined! (Please don't hesitate to contact me if you're wondering whether you'd "fit"!)
Workshops held in an accessible, downtown San Francisco office, near BART and MUNI. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required. Fee for 8 weeks is $225-300, sliding scale. To register, call 415-608-3398 or visit http://www.writingourselveswhole.org!
