Workshop: Writing the Forgotten Feminine

2:Writing the Forgotten Feminine: Giving Voice to the Disregarded, Unsung, or Silenced Woman. A One-Day Writing Workshop in beautiful Grandview Beach, Hampton, VA. Whether you're drawn to the women left out of history books or that aunt in the family no one speaks of, or even your own woman-self, subverted, forgotten, or neglected in the demands of work, parenting, or relationships, the feminine voice is one of complexity, knowing, and power that spans all of human history. Led by Mary Carroll-Hackett and MeLaina Elise Ramos, two women writers at different stages in their own work and lives, but who share a deep respect and interest in reclaiming the voices of forgotten or silenced women, this workshop will include readings on and by women who've been left out, as well as tons of prompts and exercises specifically designed to help you tap into and strengthen the feminine voice in your writing. Lunch is included. $75 includes one-day workshop, tons of prompts and exercises, a take-away packet of reading and resource materials, and gifts created just for you. To reserve your spot, email at vaprlover@gmail.com or carrollhackettma@gmail.com.
