Writing Love Letters to Ourselves

January 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

This workshop is about writing love letters to ourselves. We need healing. We invite people to acknowledge and show love and understanding to themselves.

This writing workshop is a part of the In the Eye of the Beholder series. After an intergenerational conversation about American beauty standards and how they impact women of color in December, we have two writing workshops in January 2022.

This event is a collaboration between More than a Single Story and St. Paul Library.
