(W)rites of Passage strives to provide liberated space for those who choose to write with us.
Each Saturday has an individual sub theme designed to compliment the overall concept of "Eve's Fall." The thematic idea for this new series was born from the syzygy of two primary events: First, Sarah taught a women's literature class in the spring of 2023 where she discovered the fall of Eve repeating itself again and again in all the narratives by women so often covered in such courses (think of the Monster from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein as a metaphor for Eve or Sylvia Plath's confession over a century later, "I have fallen a long way"), and secondly, because Sarah drew The Lovers card (with The Devil in tow of course) as the major arcana for all of 2023 when she did the New Year's spread for Tarot Tuesday, and received the message: Paradise is NOT lost. This seasonally-inspired workshop series will be a deep descent into the alleged Fall of Eve, and the way her mythology still serpentines around the storytelling of today, especially the stories told by those living in the margins of a culture whose desires are forbidden because only the white male is allowed to want.
Sarah serves as a writing midwife by providing space to write in community. She offers literary examples for participants to study and assigns unique writing prompts designed to inspire both the novice & seasoned writer (these are often custom-tailored to meet the individual & collective needs each new classroom culture creates as well as fit the uniquely thematic ideas that encapsulate each new series). Both poets & prose writers are welcome, as are all genres of writing (no snobbery here!). Come write your/our story. Small workshops of no more than 8 writers per Saturday guarantees the intimacy artists require to truly flourish.
