We invite you to contribute a piece to “Healing Recipes Project,” Women’s Creative Collective’s ongoing zine project and dialogue about personal healing recipes. This zine is being created in conjunction with “La Manifestación” SkillShare Retreat (May 20-…22) and other in-person writing workshops. This is a transnational project, so it doesn’t matter where you are, you can contribute!
- On a full or half 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper or document, write/draw/craft a recipe, ritual, manifesto, ceremony, rant, poem, etc. about how you’ve healed through pain & injury, stress, moon cycle discomfort, urban isolation, a broken heart, a broken spirit, self-love issues, partner abuse, depression & anxiety, any other dis-ease/discomfort/pain you’ve experienced.
~ Feel free to use your journal, pens, markers, collage materials, scissors, glue, photographs and anything else to craft your recipe. You can also keep it simple and use text only.
~ Scan & email your piece in PDF form (or just email the text) to Andrea Penagos -> firstname.lastname@example.org
*You may choose to submit anonymously :)
Need some inspiration? We would like to share with you the prompts from our in-person Healing Recipes Writing Workshop. Each prompt is drawn from a particular poem or quote. Feel free to hold a writing session with other people to do this workshop or respond to the prompts on your own, at your own pace. :)
