Tender Tales: A Writing Workshop with Emilly Prado
August 8, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$20 – $45
Stories live within our bodies, persist within our bones— some stories are old, passed down through many generations, while others are new or, perhaps, yet to be born. Join us on August 8th for ✨ Tender Tales ✨ a three hour generative workshop led by Emilly Prado. This workshop is for women, trans, and nonbinary people who are Black, Indigenous, or people of color interested in telling stories. Using writing and food as a catalyst for storytelling, we will mine memories and explore creative writing exercises that evoke the sensory —without judgment and with community.
Open to all levels and genres, register through the link in our bio. We have a few scholarship seats available, with priority given to Black and/or trans folks. If you would like a scholarship seat, please complete the registration form and someone from our team will follow-up with you.
A $20-$45 sliding donation is part of the registration process, please follow the instructions on the registration form. Donations received will be reallocated by Emilly Prado to Morpheus Youth Project, a rad org focused on community-building and restorative justice through culturally-responsive arts programming for incarcerated youth, formerly incarcerated youth transitioning back into society, and youth living in underserved communities including East Portland + Gresham.
