Poetry, Plays and Personal Monologues for Social Action: 

Are you a playwright, Poet, or person with a personal story that you would like to develop? Do you want to use your creative voice to explore and illuminate a social issue that you feel passionately about? 
Words have the power to help heal past trauma, clarify personal values and motivate others into action. Artists throughout time have used their words to raise awareness by making people stop and reflect, to illuminate the truth of what is being presented, and identify the changes needing to be made. 

You do not need to be a published playwright, poet or have experience in sharing a personal story, just a desire to dive deep and access your authentic advocate voice through your willingness to engage in your creative process. 

This workshop utilizes creative activities, writing prompts and supportive feedback to help participants in developing pieces used to enlighten and evoke change. 

Participants meet in person every week and have the option to engage in creative coaching between sessions.
