Writing Wellness
Workshops

Writing Wellness Workshops support graduate students, scholars, and upper-division high school students. Workshops are rooted in research in the history of feminist ethnic studies writing practices. We  address mental health, creative process, and trauma-informed methods as part of writing practices.

Contemplative Reading/Spiritual Autobiography

This class uniquely blends an experience of creative writing, learning social theory (including critical race theory), studying feminist foremothers, and nurturing contemplative practices. The 6-week intensive begins Sept. 19; or, join a 6-month cohort for a slower pace.

Writing With Feminist History

Writing With Feminist History: A Course in Transformations shows you how the feminist writings of history can inform your approach to writing toward a re-imagined world. You will learn writing practices modeled by women writers who have come before, exploring themes of naming, change, and liminality.

The Wisdom of Shattering

 

When I was a young competitive gymnast, I remember the day I walked off the floor mat, sat down by myself at its edge, and began to contemplate quitting the sport. I was 12.
Gymnastics had been my life — the defining orbit of my childhood ambitions...

Feminist Football Fan
   

My feminism and my love of football have a complicated relationship.
When I was eight and watching Dave Krieg, Steve Largent, and my beloved Seattle Seahawks, I dreamed of being the first female player in the NFL.  It felt unjust to me that no women were allowed in, and I wanted to be the first..

On Living a Feminist Life

 

Sara Ahmed’s latest work, Living a Feminist Life, dismantles the false divide between academic theory and the embodied world in which our concepts come alive. It is the kind of book we need more and more of by feminist scholars. It is an intervention not only in academic feminism...

Kimberly George is the rare scholar who combines her intellectual acuity with a passion for collaboration and reconciliation. Offering rigorous educational opportunities outside of academia, she emboldens individuals and groups to engage with feminist theory while untangling complicated cultural histories with openness and empathy.
