A creative, mindful writing workshop with various visual self-exploration exercises as an outlet for your relationship with your body and mind. From poetry to letters and more! Each workshop has been designed with body positivity in mind so this is a stigma free zone and is for 17+ due to safeguarding.
There will be room for sharing after each exercise and performances from those who wish to write something or have something to share already that they'd like to perform at the event.
You'll need a pen, paper and if you want to take part in collage (cutting/sticking!)- some magazines, tissue, newspapers, scissors and glue! You will receive your Zoom link when you purchase the ticket.

Special guest performances will also be part of the event!
Our Host Hey! I'm Ellamae, founder of Va Va Womb - and I was born with MRKH (without a womb/never had a period/affects 1 in 5000). I found out I could never carry children at 16 years old. I'm a lover of words and creativity and have been writing poetry, journaling and channeling my pain into creative outlets since I was a young teenager, and still to this day. I'm a sufferer of anxiety, and a thought (sometimes intrusive) juggler. Through writing/creating I have learned how to pause my ever so busy brain, connect with my body and more recently I've started to use this (albeit overdrive) energy to design creative, visual workshops to help others do the same- my workshops aim to provide a safe space for people to connect and take some time reflecting on their body positive journey. So a big thank you for buying a ticket, and if you have any feedback please email email@example.com
