Heal the Heart with Writing:  Self-care  for Writers 

March 27  | 2:15-3:15 PM CST

 Rosemount Writers Festival online: 

the festival runs on March 27  from 10:00-3:15 Pm CST 

$10 per workshop

In this workshop, we’ll discuss compassionate self-care when we are working with difficult material. What can we do when we find ourselves stuck, resisting, or emotionally overwhelmed? We will learn mindful tools to de-stress, the value of self-reflective writing to stay focused, and tips for overcoming writer’s resistance. We will learn somatic techniques to ground ourselves, with a sprinkling of writing practices to improve a sense of well-being.

My performances cross the boundaries between cultures, between emotional

and transcendent states, between the spiritual and the sensual, and

between poetry and theater. In the Bay Area Express, Natasha Nargis wrote:

"She works the room with maximum theatricality, drawing those who are

transfixed on the drama before them into her vivid, vibrant world."

My style has been described by Stefen, a Berkeley muralist, as "more like a dance"

as I unfold my heart to show the world a reflection of its own beauty.

My hope is that we realize we are not alone, though solitary....and my inner landscape affirms

that when I perform.


Cuba and Jerusalem, bursting with life and history and humanity, seemed to erupt into the room. Others, about pain and grief and loss, sunk their hooks into us, touched something deep inside. The energy and empathy of her poems was infectious, and it got us all. --Gabrielle Santiago, Patrick's Cabaret
