About the Event
In this workshop, we will examine how loss, sorrow and rituals of mourning can lead to revelations that we otherwise could not reach. We will examine work by Penelope Cray and Natasha Trethewey, and then through a series of exercises, write work that draws upon your own revelations that leads to deeper truths, as you delve deep into the disquiet.
