Write Whole: Survivors Write
Eight Monday evenings, 6:30-9:00pm.
Fall 2010 dates: Oct 4- Nov 22
Open to all women survivors of sexual trauma!

Transform your relationship with your writing -- and with yourself. For survivors in particular, writing freely in supportive and attentive community opens us up to the possibility of being fully heard in all of our expression, creative and otherwise!

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 writing voice, and receive immediate feedback about the power of your words! No previous writing experience necessary. Remember: we're open to ALL women, and 'survivor' is self-defined!

Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required. Cost for the 8 week class is on a sliding scale, $225-250 (please contact me about payment plans or other money questions!)
