About this event

The City is made up of stories. We each have a unique voice that sets us apart. Stories link us to where we come from, and help dream up where we’re going. Creative Writing can open up the space for you to tell what’s in your heart. In this unique drop-in workshop, come explore storytelling and poetry in a fun and accessible way. Create and develop your own unique voice and style through specific writing exercises and prompts. We’ll write in class and share our work aloud. This is a safe space for all community members, so join us and express your feelings, turning them into art. Let your voice be heard.

Wednesdays, November10 & 17 and December 1 & 8, 12pm-2pm PDT with a Reading on December 15 at CounterPulse

Organizer CounterPulse

Organizer of City Stories Workshop with San Francisco Creative Writing Institute

CounterPulse is building a movement of risk-taking art that shatters assumptions and builds community. We provide space and resources for emerging artists and cultural innovators, serving as an incubator for the creation of socially relevant, community-based art and culture. CounterPulse acts as a catalyst for art and action; creating a forum for the open exchange of art and ideas, sparking transformation in our communities and our society. We work towards a world that celebrates diversity of race, class, cultural heritage, artistic expression, ability, gender identity & sexual orientation. We strive to create an environment that is physically and economically accessible to everyone.
