I had the great privilege to present my collection of poetry at the MassPoetry Fest 2017 and the First Annual Graduate Student Research and Creative Activity Conference.
I will be developing a healing writing workshop for parents of all ages. For those of you who wish to write, share and explore your experience as parents in an open and supportive environment.
The workshops will lead to developing an anthology of creative and non-fiction dedicated to the authentic experiences of motherhood. How we discuss the role of motherhood in our everyday life needs to change, we need to first value our own stories in order to value the role of motherhood on our society. From that we will develop change in our community, our work place, our homes, in our government and in ourselves. When you learn to value and respect yourself, in turn you learn to lift up those around you.
If you have struggled with your place in this world?
If you have suffered from feeling inadequate as a mother?
If you feel that you have abandoned a part of yourself after becoming a mother?
If you love your children but value the quiet moments alone in the car?
If you wonder if you matter in this world?
Then lets gather together, share our stories of motherhood, release our fears and lift each other up.
