Welcome to the She Howls! A FREE monthly online Women's Writing Circle exploring our wild voices, the voices that inhabit the deepest places within us, that quietly wait until we are ready to unleash them through paper and pen.
We are all poetic beings. Prepare to be empowered. It's time to grab your pens and howl! (See 'How to join in' below for sign-up details).
What we'll do:
In this session we'll be imagineering through words and metaphor what BELONGING means to us? Where and how do we belong? How do we become a ‘Citizen of Self’ if we sometimes feel like a citizen of nowhere?
This session is powered by my curiosity around my own sense of (un)belonging, as a child of immigrants, as a single, child-free woman (you should see the Auntyji’s faces drop when I tell them this!), as someone pursuing her passion in arts having given up the safe day job and pension...I could go on! And working towards the emergence of a new sense of ‘belonging to self’.
We'll be responding to poetry, music and questions, using them to imaginatively adventure within. By the end of the session you’ll be a ‘citizen of your words’ with the potential to take this forward as medicine in to everyday life.
I'll encourage you to be intuitive when writing, let go of your inner critic and write freely, share your words and be heard by others, without judgment or criticism. There will be an opportunity to share your creations during the session but there is no obligation to do so.
My intention is that this space will encourage confidence, courage and compassion as we discover our unique and wild voice through writing. These sessions are not about literary skill or grammatical correctness – they are about freeing our inner writer, our inner voice. Punctuation and correct spelling are optional! Suitable for those new to writing/poetry and for experienced writers too.
We'll gather together online via Zoom where we can create quietly and howl loudly.
