This creative writing workshop series is designed to help African women heal from and prevent everyday trauma exposure. Trauma is defined as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. In our "Writing to Heal Trauma" workshops, we focus on identifying & healing trauma by developing the narrative voice of those left voiceless as a result of a traumatic experience. In our workshop series we highlight the connection between our thoughts, feelings and actions to help women rewrite the stories of their life thru prose & poetry. Our writing workshops are a safe sacred space for the processing of personal pain. We utilize writing as a tool to help process some of our most vulnerable emotions as African women.
