“Trauma in the Body is a creative writing workshop that begins with a brief presentation of how trauma works in the body and how to identify if your body is stuck in “freeze” or “flight” mode(s). After the introduction, Alan leads participants through a study of three poems by migrant writers that help us obtain necessary language to speak about our traumas so that we can relax our bodies and ease physical pain. During this workshop, participants are encouraged to explore where they feel pain in their bodies, create a sculpture of their body part and then write poetry to their bodies.
