A ‘Meaningful’ Writing Class:
A Creative Writing Word-shop by Nabilah Said
Can paper have a personality or point of view? What if paper had a voice? Write something from the perspective of paper in this workshop by artist and writer Nabilah Said and ponder the relationship you have with this humble material. Participants are asked to bring something made of paper that is meaningful to them.
