Open to self-identified Black women, Indigenous women and women of colour, this workshop series focuses on short personal essays in poetry and prose forms exploring the intersections of gender, race and spirituality. The first three workshops will explore writing by Black women, Indigenous women and women of colour authors, prompt-based writing in either prose or poetry forms, and peer-workshopping and sharing. The fourth workshop will be a work-shopping and editing session for personal creative pieces inspired and created from our sessions, and in the final workshop we will communally hand-bind and compile pieces from work-shoppers to be put together into a zine format. We will learn the pamphlet stitch and hand-bind zines to take with us to distribute to our communities. Limited free copies will be available to be distributed at the Multi-Faith Centre.
