September Homecoming Writing Workshop for Black Women

Sunday Sept. 8, 15, 22, 29th 2-6pm

Kaleida Creative Collective

331 W. Main Street

Durham, NC 27701

Facilitated by Zelda Lockhart

“Everything in life is in transition, sometimes so much so that home ain’t home no more and the new home hasn’t revealed itself."

In this four-part workshop write in creative community to reimagine, fashion, sharpen and oil your tools for finding your new normal.

The purpose of this workshop is for you:
• To write a personal essay as a road map to your womanish home (literal and figurative).
• To write your essay while taking in art, music, poetry and philosophy of Black Women who have been on this same tedious journey many-a-time (in order to honor her homegoing, we will definitely include some of Toni Morrison’s wisdom.)
• To remember yourself and your tools for self-defining, healing, and liberating yourself and your future generations.

Fee: Sliding scale $300 - $100

Zelda Lockhart holds a PhD in expressive therapies, and is a registered expressive arts consultant and educator. She utilizes the literary arts with other art forms as adjunct to help folks do one of two things: 

  • Reach the goal of a literary manuscript using their personal life experiences and the discovered  experiences during the writing process (and other adjunct art making) as  the main ingredients
  • Heal and transform using literary writing (and other adjunct art forms) as the tools to reach that goal 

These goals sound similar, because healing transformation and literary product are an outcome of each, but the primary goal of the first is the manuscript with healing transformation as a secondary outcome, and the primary goal of the second is the healing transformation with some literary writing as the secondary outcome.
Location:  Via Zoom or Google Hangouts.
