We are so grateful to have collaborated with our friends at Curtain Up Cancer Foundation who partnered with us this month for Voices of Recovery—a two-day class on storytelling. WIC writers Todd Wright and Marisela Barrera led this writing workshop for cancer survivors in which the participants crafted 3-5 minute stories about their cancer experience.

Last Friday, the Public Theater hosted the celebratory reading (thank you!) to a great turnout of family and friends, and an evening of beautiful, amazing stories. Thank you to our partners & teachers, and to Bennack-Polan Foundation who funded this amazing workshop—and most of all to our participants who are finding healing through words.

Keep an eye out for the Voices of Recovery October workshop that takes place Sat–Sun, October 6 & 7, at Gemini Ink. More info coming soon—follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates.

 

Writers Carol Gonzales and Pam Duesing led this 9-week poetry workshop, which was funded by the King William Association and Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA).
