What participants are saying
"I had never heard out loud the need to heal from my experience of writing due to how some of my professors criticized my work. I hadn’t realized that this was one of the reasons that added to the imposter syndrome and why I stopped writing. This has opened up a part of me that will allow my voice to be heard again.”
— Deysi Zendejas Acuna, PsyD.
"The writing workshop was an intentional space that supported my creativity. The format was simple yet challenging. It allowed me to explore different parts of my upbringing and self that I had not considered before. Cristina and Renee were encouraging and incredible facilitators.”
— Evelia Ilarraz
"I just want to thank y’all for the writing to our ancestors workshop. I was able to finish and pass my qualifying exam because of how I changed my writing habits and approach. Thank y’all for everything!”
— Jenelle Nila
