Power Surge: A series of four lunch time writing workshops

How do you plug back into your power when you’re running low? How do you connect to your own voice, to the resources and the sources of energy that move you to act in ways that feel personally and academically alive and potent? At this time of year you might need a burst of brightness, an infusion of support, an elixir of motivation. Take an hour out and get sparked by the poetry, actions and ideas of others as well as your own. In these four weeks, through writing and engaging with words and people, plug in.
