Torran Anderson

45 Minute Program

 

$129


COVID-19 has been challenging for everyone. In this interactive workshop, participants:
  1. Share objects that represent COVID-19
  2. Create a list of things they miss during the pandemic and create a group poem with this list
  3. Celebrate the tiny things they like about living

This workshop allows for a safe space to share the challenges we face during COVID-19 and allows participants to:
  • Express what they miss and create a poem out of it
  • Encourage resiliency with techniques like looking to the positive things in our lives

Participants need paper and pencil for this workshop. Torran will share free access to his Young Adult novel in verse Piñata Moon and how he used the writing process to focus on resiliency.
