Our stories are sacred and should always be treated as such! People have been sharing stories on this land for thousands and thousands of years. Stories and myths ground us, provide perspective, lessons and hope. Lady comes from a family of storytellers and uses storytelling tools frequently in her poetry. This workshop is a glimpse into Lady Vanessa's storytelling writing process. The workshop will take participants through a brainstorming session, guiding them to think critically and purposefully on how they would like to share their stories. The workshop will also provide writing prompts that encourage participants to share their stories with integrity and healing creative energy.
