Healing the Fractures: Writing from Deep Experience
Location: Milepost 5
Collaborators: Ava Kamb and Jairaj Singh
How do we overcome cultural silences around mental health in communities of color? How do we move away from the perception that we are broken and in need of fixing? Using generative writing exercises, we mined memory, family history, and fractured narratives of the self to build writing practices rooted in compassion and imagination. This was open to all levels of writers.
