The Heart is an Arrow: transforming trauma through art & creative writing

Held at the Greensboro Public Library and the Greensboro Historical Museum
July 9th, 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. All levels and genres of writing are welcome.

FA334aThe arrow and the maker of the arrow together symbolize movement from the past, in the present, to the future. The process honors the maker’s past, the maker’s power to overcome strongholds of the past, the wisdom to embrace what is good, to reconcile the past with the present. Symbolically, together the maker of the arrow and the arrow become unified. It is like when an archer rests the arrow on the string, sets the mark, draws backward before she/he sends the arrow into the future.

Please join us, along with artist and writer Kathrine Cays in exploring life, trauma, and voices from the past. We will spend some time at the Greensboro Historical Museum as part of our inspiration. Check some of their exhibits at greensborohistory.org.

Please bring:

  • a notebook and pen/pencil or preferred writing implements
  • any small items you may want to attach to your heart, or arrow
  • any sweater or comfortable clothing
  • your small donation of thanks, or dana, will be welcome

Co-sponsored by the Greensboro Public Library Foundation and Women Writers of the Triad.  RSVP by sending an e-mail to Melissa here.
