Write To Connect will give two body poetics workshops at Rose Manor, residential treatment program for women.

At the invite of the Tampa Arts Council, Write To Connect will be offering two body poetics workshops--May 24th and May 31--at Rose Manor/Tampa Crossroads, a residential treatment program for young women. I am really excited to meet these women and be a part of their transformative journeys.

Many of these women have been "sentenced" to this program, as an alternative to prison and/or loss of their children. 

In our W2C class, we will work on what it means to reclaim our own "sentences", the sentences that flow from our physical and emotional impulses and true heart rhythms, the sentence that stagger or dance out of our mouths, on to the page, in community--the new and different sentences we can use, creatively, to remake ourselves and dream our futures.
