Writing Our Hair workshop at the SF Public Library

This interactive session is a nurturing, intentional space to write and share your natural hair stories led by Lyzette Wanzer the author of Trauma, Tresses, & Truth: Untangling Our Hair Through Personal Narratives.


This writing workshop is geared for African American, Afro Latina, and multiracial women who are interested in a safe, nurturing, intentional space to write and share their hair stories. Poems, essays and short stories are all welcome. The workshop will take place in a computer lab on laptop computers. However, feel free to bring your writing materials, be that a literal notebook, journal, sketchbook or laptop. All emotions that surface—anger, sadness, outrage, empowerment or tears—are welcome. Participants should be comfortable sharing drafts with others.


Register through the San Francisco Public Library's African American Center.
