The Surviving the Mic Writing Workshop

September 18, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Surviving the Mic Writing Workshop series is designed for survivors of sexual harm. The two-hour workshop will present written and/or performance work that explores the experience, impact, and nuances of sexual harm. It will also offer participants a chance to craft new work and the opportunity for participants to present their work during a mini-salon at the end of each gathering. The workshops take place on the third Wednesday of every month, from 6-8pm, at Hyde Park Arts Center, located at 5020 S. Cornell Ave, Chicago, IL. They are free and open to anyone above the age of 18 and are facilitated by survivor-led organization Surviving the Mic and supported by the Hyde Park Arts Center and the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation. Porchlight Counseling Services will provide additional crisis/referral support to all participants. Workshops are LGBTQIAA friendly and affirming. The space is accessible to folks who have difficulty navigating stairs or use a wheelchair. For other types of accommodation, please contact survivingthemic@gmail.com.
