The art of writing is transformative. When we use this tool to tell our own stories, we transform vulnerability into valuable perspective and share parts of ourselves that empower and inspire. When we tell our story, we can also heal ourselves. In this hands-on workshop, renowned author and social activist, Cynthia Bond, will discuss the practice of transforming personal narratives into exemplary writing. Space is limited; please contact Georgine Hodgkinson at hodgkig (at) crc [dot] losrios [dot] edu if you would like to reserve space at this event.
