Many of us don’t do things like go on Safari, or a hike, or sleep under the stars because we are so vulnerable in society. In this workshop we’ll remember what it’s like to be a member of a female band of warriors, well the kind that use an ink pen as a spear – giggle.
Imagine smelling that peppery morning misty smell of fall, and feeling that wide open-chested feeling after a night's sleep under the stars with other Black Women Writing Warriors. Smell the coffee on the fire, feel your senses so alert that you can't help but to journal and put those words down on the page. I'll facilitate your wilderness experience, some journal prompts, and a gentle nature hike along the river.
Yep, I can't wait. Will you join me?

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.
