Join us for this two-hour interactive workshop to engage in conversing with your calling, deepen your art (whether writing, storytelling, spoken word, songwriting, or more), and grow your community. We'll write and map what's calling at large and in particular, how to focus in on what the timing is right for now, and what next steps to consider. We'll also explore what self-care and a community ethic of supporting each other can look like for you and yours. Finally, there will be time to talk about your questions and possibilities.This workshop is being offered as an event to benefit the Transformative Language Arts Network. Register here.
