'Writing Resilience Online Workshop' with Alessia Galatini
This 90 minute writing workshop will focus on reconnecting with our bodies and our minds through words. It's both an exploration of and an homage to the resilience that has carried us through these countless lockdowns. Through writing prompts and cues, participants will be invited to write poetry and prose inspired by identity, connection and perseverance. No writing experience required and sharing is always voluntary and welcome.
