Workshop Lead: Sharon Zarita Adhiambo

For 3 sessions in April, craft artist, creative writer and entrepreneur Sharon Zarita Adhiambo is facilitating a series of creative writing and storytelling workshops inspired by this month's theme of "Motherland". Participants will dive into journaling their thoughts and ideas through a collection of writing activities and prompts. If you are interested in uncovering your own story, learning to craft a spoken word piece, and space to poetically reflect and journal, this workshop series is for you! You will have the opportunity to share your spoken piece at the Thursday Mingling event on May 2nd.
