Writing from the Womb Workshop

Representing for mi hermana Alicia Anabel Santos, workshop coordinator!!!

"My most humbling and significant role is around supporting writers in doing the work... the task of tending to the work... the discipline of the writers craft... the process of giving birth to something you work so hard for. I realized recently that everything that I have done in my life, on my writers journey, discovering my voice, leading women spaces has led me to transforming the Writing from the Womb workshop and facilitating it in a much different way than I have in the past."
