SMYAL is partnering up with the incredible C. Alexandria-Bernard Thomas to bring you monthly poetry writing workshops from Feb. 2022 through 2023!
Each month, award-winning poet, and advocate C. Alexandria-Bernard Thomas (He/they) will be hosting their original workshop Writing to Wellness™, a discussion-based workshop designed for writers to use poetry as a tool for healing when navigating trauma. Participants learn helpful tips via discussion on how to navigate trauma through expressive forms of creative writing, how to advocate for others and how to build a safe space for self-care.
Writing to Wellness™ for LGBTQ+ Youth, ages-13-24, will be hosted via Zoom on the first Friday of each month from 6-7:30 pm ET. Topics will rotate each month, feature new writing prompts, and teach you ways to heal through creative expression.
