Priority for disabled and d/Deaf, chronically ill people, QTBIPOC folks, queer and trans people, people with mental health diagnoses, undiagnosed people… people with unruly bodies.

We’re committed to anti-racism in the space and in the exercises we will do together. This group draws inspiration from writers like Lee Maracle and adrienne maree brown, who provide leadership through their books and their transformational writing practices for groups.

Join us to write words that dance towards liberation, exhilaration, and transformation!!
