My Heart is in the East Storytelling & Poetry Workshop
Thursday 18 November 19.00 – 20.30
Using interfaith issues in the MHiitE play (which is set in the Arab/Jewish/Christian world of 10th Century Cordoba) as a jumping off place, participants will receive inspiration, tools, writing time. There will be short performed poetic segments from the play, then the facilitator of the workshop Jessica Litwak ( who is also the author of MHiitE) will offer a series of timed writing prompts. The prompts will allow workshop participants to explore Arabic and Jewish forms of poetry while telling personal stories about faith, communication, relationships across difference, and cultural exchange.
