All Levels | Join author Rajnii Eddins for a dynamic interactive experience in creative exploration of self-expression and imagination. Through writing prompts and words garnered collectively from participants we will create our own poems, riffs, and songs and see the magic held when we share them together in a vulnerable fashion. This workshop is being held in partnership with — and will take place at — Wa Na Wari.

This class may be moved online for some or all sessions depending on the COVID-19 public health guidelines and Hugo House’s current in-person program policy. We are monitoring the situation daily. Hugo House prioritizes the health of students and staff.
