This four-week long Literary Workshop is designed for current or past Domestic Abuse survivors. The course will focus on narrative exercises and poetry as a means to express the various overwhelming emotions that survivors experience daily. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss different poems and lyrics by other Domestic Violence survivors. They will also have the option to share their poems (performance-style) on the last day of the workshop.
