Writing for Social Activism
Saturday, October 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm $59
Expressive writing can be a significant tool to guide us in the expression of our social activism. We’ll explore how poetry and metaphor have the ability to shape and shift consciousness. We’ll see how – by taking up our pens on behalf of what we love, what we believe in – we not only learn to help and soothe ourselves but have a positive impact on the causes and institutions that matter so greatly to us. Some examples of what you’ll take away:
- How poetry and metaphor have the ability to shape and shift consciousness.
- To explore what it is to write on behalf of the natural world and those who live in it and do not have a voice.
- How—by taking up your pen on behalf of what you love and believe in—you don’t just learn to help and heal yourself and/or your clients, but also have an impact on the world.
- How to write a personal manifesto, and you’ll complete an example that can serve as your action template.
