Kim Stafford workshops & events

These workshops are dedicated to inviting “what wants to be written” from each participant. They are inclusive, non-competitive, exploratory, collaborative. We become a learning community devoted to a spell of safety and curiosity that welcomes what comes to the page without expectation or judgment. Along the way, we begin to envision doors opening in multiple directions for what we are ready to tell, and what the world needs from each voice among us.
