Join us for an enlightening five-week journey with Tara Zafft, a seasoned poet and writing instructor, in the “Being, Becoming, and Belonging” workshop series. This unique workshop is designed for writers, poets, and anyone yearning to delve into the core aspects of human rights and personal identity through the art of writing.

In this five-week generative workshop we will explore the issues of being, becoming, and belonging. Each week we will explore how we use elements of craft (form, diction, tone, persona and more) to express these three fundamental aspects of human rights. The first half of the class will be begin with a reflection on the work of poets who have grappled with these questions, followed by some time for free writing and sharing. The second half of the class will be a more traditional workshop with two writers sharing their work and receiving feedback.

Does this sound like YOU?

  • You LOVE writing and you know that you are capable of writing something great! However, you find it hard to write consistently. You find yourself on the hunt for inspiration. Some days you feel more inspired than others but for the most part, your relationship with creativity remains… complicated.
  • You may feel unsure about how to approach profound themes in your writing, or you might be seeking a deeper connection with your creative self and others.
  • Even if you do manage to write, you lack flow, structure and accountability.
  • You feel you are not really part of a creative community and have no one to give you valuable feedback, which keeps you stuck in the same loop of no progress.

Imagine in just a few weeks…

  • You feel lit up by your writing again! Your creative energy is re-ignited, and for the first time in a long time, you look toward writing with excitement rather than stress.
  • You feel a stronger sense of self, a richer understanding of your writing, and a newfound confidence in expressing complex themes.
  • You’re surrounded by a community of writers that share your passion for exploring the human experience through words.
