The Voices and Faces Project's testimonial writing workshop for survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence and trafficking
Every survivor story has power and purpose. During "The Stories We Tell," a two-day writing workshop, survivors will read and discuss testimonial writing, reflect on how to share their own stories, and engage in a series of innovative writing exercises. With a focus on memoir, fiction, non-fiction and poetry, "The Stories We Tell" was created to support those who seek to use writing as a vehicle for personal or political change.

Saturday, November 10th & Sunday, November 11th, 2012
