Write Whole: Survivors Write
Eight Monday eves, 6:00-8:30pm. Begins January 16.
Open to all women survivors of sexual trauma!
Early-bird rate ends December 9.

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 experience necessary. Limited to 9 writers. We'll meet in downtown San Francisco, 2-3 blocks from Powell St. BART Station. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required.

The fee for an 8-week session is $350. (I can generally work out payment plans; please contact me if you have question or concerns about payment.) There is a reduced-rate early bird fee of $315 if you register by December 9. The regular registration fee will be in effect through January 1, 2012. The late registration fee is $385; last day to register is January 9. Please register early!
