Following the wake of the election results, I decided to host a writing circle for the greater community as a way for us to come together to express ourselves and process. I held one at the Hugo House and one at Mosaic Coffeehouse. Both were powerful and cathartic. The need for such gatherings will not go away, and so now I am brainstorming ways to keep offering regular community-oriented writing sessions that are on a drop-in, suggested-donation basis, i.e. the new Community page on this website, or my Heart Radical Writing page on Facebook.
Here is a blog post I wrote for the Hugo House describing the session I held, with suggestions on how to hold a writing circle for your own community.
