Virtual Event at Bookshop Santa Cruz for My Shouting, Shattered, Whispering Voice
July 21, 7pm
The ultimate writing guide from the editor of Ink Knows No Borders: Poems of the Immigrant and Refugee Experience
My Shouting, Shattered Whispering Voice offers ways to express rage, frustration, joy, and sorrow, and to substitute apathy with creativity, usurp fear with daring, counteract anxiety with the joy of writing one word down and then another to express vital, but not previously articulated thoughts. Most importantly, here you can discover the value of your own voice and come to believe that what you have to say matters.

Find words to respond to our complicated world. Make art out of your life.
