Moved from in-person to online due to the corona virus. If you’re spending a lot of time alone or at home right now, you might be making some discoveries about yourself that are challenging to confront and even harder to love. Let’s continue the self-discovery and nurture the self-love with writing.

This safe space for black women and other women of color will allow you to build community while (re-)discovering authors like Audre Lorde, Toni Morrison, Zora Neale Hurston, Ruth Forman, and youEvery session builds on the previous one, and the more we can all get together, the more we can grow from each other, so attending every session is strongly suggested.

More:

I believe that for Black women, self-love in a world that upholds white supremacy, anti-blackness, and misogyny is one of the most subversive acts we can commit to. I believe we will find liberation for ourselves and our communities through radical self-love because it reminds us we are worthy of freedom, just as we are. Self-love begins with self-knowledge, and individuals can unearth self-knowledge by writing about the self and by listening to the wisdom and truths the body holds.

In 2019, I founded the Black Womanhood (Re-)Affirmation Project [WRAP] so that I could develop and teach a literature and dance curriculum that centers adult black women and our liberation, amplifies our stories, and builds on the existing sisterhood and community among us. The Black WRAP is a course and workshop series that builds radical self-love in, and affirms the resilience of Black women, women of color, and other participants utilizing literature, writing, and dance that center Black women’s experiences. 

As part of Black WRAP,  Liberation Through Literature: Black Women Writing for Self-Knowledge and Self-Love invites you to unlearn the self-hate that misogyny and anti-blackness can produce and to build your toolbox for healing. Liberation Through Literature is a writing workshop, but I’ll encourage the use of literary devices and revision only as it serves to clarify your lived experience to you. I’ll set aside time for those who are willing to read their work out loud so we can recognize common experiences, increase our confidence, diminish shame, and build community—just like a long history of black women writers has done for us.

And now that the workshop is online, it’s available wherever you are!

We meet live each week, 6-7:30 p.m., Eastern Time Zone. Cost is $30 per person, per week. Pay per week or save money by registering the entire series up front.
