The Find Your Voice workshop guides participants through the creative writing process to support their individual healing practices and to compose a writing piece that can be included in their portfolios. Participants will have the opportunity to share their work with peers within this private workshop, and share constructive and uplifting insight about each other’s work to encourage growth in their creative journeys.
Guided by facilitators authors Kamilah Haywood and Gloria O'Koye, and prisoners' rights advocate Lindsay Jennings, the workshop will also feature an opening from Robin Rice, and a special guest presenter at each session: September will highlight digital creator Kamal Hakim.
Within this safe space, participants can connect and create in honour of their lived experiences. Newly released participants requiring programming hours are encouraged to sign up. Priority will be given to previously-incarcerated artists, entertainers, and/or writers.
Registration is free, and all welcome to attend. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details, or if you have requests for accessibility/accommodation during the online session.
