In our 11th year of honoring V-Day, our observance, open to All Genders 18+, will consist of writing circles (In-Person & Virtual).
In this 11th year of honoring V-Day, WWf(a)C will underscore the importance of community, and decrease the emphasis on performance. Our observance, which will be open to All Genders 18+, will consist of writing circles. Writers are welcome to bring pieces prepared in advance (3-minute time limit) or, we will also have a fastwrite opportunity and folks can share that writing if desired. As always, passing will be an honored option and confidentiality will be expected of all participants. The format for the In-Person and Virtual circles will be identical: Opening poem, Check-in, Fastwrite, and Readaround with a break at the half, Readback lines, Closing with intention, and Soul Cards.
For the last several years, our V-Day events have served as containers for the stories of our lived experiences. Stories submitted by our writing community take the form of essays, poems, songs, memoir, letters, and rants. Pieces with humor have played an important role too. Some writings reflect suffering, others describe healing; some express despair, others hope. We expect this year’s event to reflect similar diversity in content. The writing circle holds each story with compassion, acceptance, and utmost confidentiality. It’s a liberating experience that expands the hearts of both readers and listeners.
Contributions from V-Day events provide vital support for our outreach circles that serve survivors of abuse and homelessness, as well as incarcerated individuals.
Open to All Genders 18+. Held via Zoom -- your facilitator will provide information regarding this online environment prior to class.
