SARVA Writing Workshop

Hosted by: Katie

Description: Come talk and create something with the SARVA team at our writing workshop! This workshop will include reading poetry and/or short stories from sexual assault and relationship violence survivors and provide prompts to help us process some of the topics that we tackle throughout SARVA month. Writing can be a powerful tool to reflect on heavy topics and take a moment to process the world around us and how we feel in a constructive way. This will be an informal environment for students to work through and express feelings related to sexual assault and relationship violence through their writing. Whether you write frequently or not at all, we hope that this provides an opportunity for creative reflection and self care. We can discuss what we read, share what we write, take breaks with crafts, and even prepare pieces to be shared at Take Back the Night — all at our own pace. This is a space for members of our community to create something that helps and empowers them, whatever that may mean. We look forward to seeing you there!
