This workshop is a place to learn to create and maintain a writing practice. Like many relationships, we tend to wait for the good stuff to come to us, like that fictional Prince(ss) Charming. This is your chance to take the lead, find the connection, and commit for a long term and rewarding partnership with your own voice. Taught by Sossity Chiricuzio – poet, storyteller, and MC/Producer of Dirty Queer – this workshop is comprised of writing exercises, group brainstorming, and feedback sessions. All participants will receive a list of writers resources and exercises to take home with them.

This event requires a ticket (see above) and is 18+. Please bring your own food for the break.

Accessibility info:
+ no steps to the door, or inside the building
+ slight ramp between the two areas of the building
+ approx. 3′ width for the entrance
+ gender neutral bathroom (variable wheelchair access to the bathroom – it’s wide, but there is a 90 degree turn from hallway to room, and no rail)
+ ramp to the stage
+ sturdy folding chairs and some couches
+ we ask that folks be low scent or scent free
+ please leave your furry companions at home unless they are service animals
If you have any questions, please contact Sossity:
