Writing to Survive: Crafting the Story of Your Heart
Toni Morrison once said, "If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." In this intergenerational workshop, author Mariama J. Lockington will guide participants in understanding how storytelling--in many forms--can be a tool for survival. Participants will engage with the work of Audre Lorde, Billie Holiday, and Octavia Butler, etc. while exploring what it means to write #ownvoices stories. What is the story of your heart? How will you tell it? Why will it matter? Come ready to listen, laugh, engage, and share your unique voice. Hosted by Lisa Rocklin, WWf(a)C Executive Director.
