During my time at Antioch, I led two virtual workshops for parents of disabled or complex needs children. My goal was to create a space for these parents to have time for themselves, while doing something creative.
We began with a discussion about how we could create a brave space as a group and then went on to have a short roundtable introduction before jumping into a brief discussion about genres.
The genre discussions (fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) included an introduction with examples written by parents of disabled children or disabled folks. Through writing prompts and the opportunity to share, we were able to create a brave, educational, and supportive workshop together in a very short time.
