Fall workshops begin in October!

Registration open for Fall workshops!
Join us!

Beginning in October, I’m again offering three AWA-method workshops: our Monday night Write Whole group for women survivors of sexual trauma, the Tuesday night erotic workshop (open to all genders!), and our Wednesday morning women’s sensuality writing workshop!

Write Whole: Survivors Write
Monday evenings 10/6-12/1.
Gather with other women survivors of sexual trauma to create new art and new beauty out of the difficult and complicated realities of our lives. You’ll be encouraged to trust the flow of your own writing, and receive immediate feedback about the power of your words!

Declaring Our Erotic
Tuesday pm, 10/7-12/2.
Get more comfortable exploring and talking about sexual desires, receive strong and focused feedback about your new writing, explore the varied and complex aspects of sexuality and desire, and, of course, try your hand at some explicit erotic writing! In 8 weeks, you’ll create an exciting body of fresh and often surprising new writing!

Raw Silk: Women write desire
Wednesday mornings, 10/8-12/3.
Spend your Wednesday mornings wrapping yourself in the language of longing, celebrating the complex textures of sensuality. Each week, we delve into a new thread in the interweaving of our desires: memory, fantasy, experience, relationship with the body, spirituality, and so on. Experience your fully empowered writing voice in this safe, confidential, and fun erotic writing workshop. Explore desire through writing with Raw Silk.

Changing our language can change who we understand ourselves to be.

No previous experience necessary! Pre-registration required. Fee for 8-week AWA workshops is $250. Workshops held our wheelchair accessible downtown SF location, right near BART and multiple MUNI routes!

As always, if you’ve got any questions, please send them to me at jennifer (at) writingourselveswhole (dot) org. Use the links at the top of this page to learn more info, or visit www.writingourselveswhole.org to register!

Here’s what some folks have said about these workshops:

Magic happens here, that’s the thing. We explore the politics of desire in the most amazing ways. Jen’s workshops are good nourishment for the soul and creativity, as well as really empowering and FUN!!! Go toward the fun….. — Cayenne

The chance to integrate erotica and language, out loud in community, every week, is such a human delight and relief–it can lead us to unexpected discoveries, both inside us and out there in the world. –LB
