(Re)Introduction to Creative Writing
New to Creative Writing? Taken a bit of a break for a while and looking got get back into it? This class will take a look at a mixture of fiction and poetry techniques, styles and forms and be paired with writing prompts to inspire new writing. This workshop will take place at LIMINAL: A Feminist & Womanist Writing Space in Oakland, CA. It is a 6 week workshop happening every Sunday starting from September 18th, from 12:30pm-2:30pm. We will have a final reading on October 28th for all Fall Workshop participants.
I see writing as a vehicle for voice. It is a tool for advocacy, political, personal, communal, creative, at times grave and at times playful. I am interested in community through the use of writing, though the expressions it allows for, the connections, the truth- seeking and finding and in being in roles of support and creation in these processes. It matters to me that women and marginalized groups in society have mediums that give them voice, and that I am an active participant in listening, attending, and being an ally as much as it is important to me to create in my own vision through the use of my voice, which I hope will resonate with the experience of truth for others.
