What Participants Have to Say:
“The [short] readings were spot-on, serving as entry ways into lively discussions but also inspiring our own original writing. Brava!”
“I just loved the opportunity to read, write, and, if I wanted to, share. These workshops brought back memories that were tucked into the recess of my mind and deepened my interest in reflecting and writing about my culture.
“I’ll take these workshops again and again. So lovely to meet so many nice, new people. Excellent, skilled, and inspiring instructor.”
