Diverse Voices Writing Group

Diverse Voices-25.png

THU. AUG. 2 // 5:30 PM

ADULTS & TEENS // A writing group for all experience levels that supports and elevates diverse voices.

Long ago, when we had only darkness at night, people came together around miraculous fire to tell stories and describe visions. When you come to this writing group, whoever you might be outside of this circle, you are now a storyteller, a maker of visions, and a story-listener, too. In this circle there is only support and caring.

You bring your truth, your poetry, your fiction, your non-fiction, your ideas of the world, of life, of everything, and no one—no one—can make you someone other than who you are, even if you, yourself, aren't sure yet who that someone really is.

Some of you will sit down here full-voiced, others will come whispering, murmuring, silent. Some will come with anger, some with sadness, some with regret, some with joy, some with blessings to give and precious moments to tell. This circle accepts you where you are. Just know: Your stories and visions matter, the sharing of your truth strengthens not just you, but all of us. So welcome, welcome.
