There is freedom in exploration. There is release in sharing your story. There is healing in being heard.
From Natalie Goldberg’s “Writing Down the Bones” and Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way” to women’s consciousness raising groups in the 70’s that changed the world for so many of us, Write Hear is a workshop set in liberation. It’s about writing with other women and hearing each other’s words. For anyone who’s written or faced that blank page or screen, you know it’s about hearing your own voice first in order to catch it into words. And writing with others is a surefire motivation to finally sit down and listen. Join us for a writing prompt with only one rule of critique: we’re not critics or professors so just say what you liked.
