Past Virtual Workshop Stories
On Wednesday, March 18, Theresa piloted our first Google Hangouts drop-in writing workshop for Mosaic Project, centering stories of Asian Americans in Richmond. In our current reality of physical distancing, it continues to be important for RSH to continue building community and provide a space to write and share experiences. Participants were able to reflect, write, and share, in response to one of these prompts:
Write a poem using this fill-in-the-blank formula: "I used to, ______, now I _______."
Write a love letter to yourself, a family member, or friend.
Themed prompts from "The Sun" magazine: my country, holidays, and highs and lows
The group found these prompts to be inspirational. One group member said she might use the first prompt (the fill-in-the-blank poetry) with her children during these homeschool days.
