The Greensboro Commission on the Status of Women is conducting workshops to help women who are survivors of domestic violence, or who have family members who have suffered domestic violence.
The commission will host five writing workshops that are intended to encourage women to write through group exercises and exploration. The workshops are intended to help women share or express any aspects, moments or memories of their stories. They are intended to help women tell of their experiences with abuse and survival in a exercise to empower and help them find and craft their voices, according to a city news release.
The first workshop is 6 p.m. Thursday, August 8, at Warnersville Recreation Center, 601 Doak St.
Women Writers of the Triad will provide writers trained in facilitating workshops with abused women, according to the news release. The writings will be compiled following the workshops and shared, read or performed in a theater-like venue, with a possible anthology to be printed, according to the news release.
Anyone interested in the workshops is asked to attend the Warnersville event.
