Writing Workshop - Healing Through Writing the Unsaid

  • The Poetry Lab 235 East Broadway Long Beach, CA, 90802 United States (map)

Silencing does not benefit the silenced.  How does silence keep us from becoming who we are really meant to be?  What have you kept silent and why?  Through a series of writing prompts including letter writing, we’ll make space for our experiences that have been silenced and have held us back.
