Join Seattle Civic Poet Anastacia Renee for a writing workshop of Glamorous Refusal at LOVECITYLOVE!
We'll explore NO-ing from our bodies through chants, yelling and physical body movement and do a series of writing prompts based on the idea that NO is verb and NO-ing is a birthright. You'll leave with a solid draft of poetry or prose and a NO-ing you'll carry with you for always. All attendees will get a copy of Issue 01 of The Magazine of Glamorous Refusal.
*Dress comfortably. This workshop is for both emerging and seasoned writers.
*Bring a yoga mat or a pillow.
*Students are free and no one will be turned away for lack of funds (RSVP still required - contact us at glamorousrefusal @ gmail or on Instagram to coordinate).
