FREE | Pen to Print: Hear My Voice Creative Writing Workshop with Farzana Hakim

March 10, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am EST

Pen to Print- Hear My Voice Creative Writing Workshop with Farzana Hakim

About this event

The Hear My Voice, Creative Writing Workshops for Women with Farzana Hakim, author of Sweethearts Of Ilford Lane and editor of Thursday Connectors at Write On! Magazine, are back for yet another exciting course of creative writing and thought-provoking debate.

In this workshop, we will be looking back and reflecting through discussion, the people from the past who have had the biggest influence on our lives. Starting with Farzana’s own story, she will talk about her grandparents and how both had a different impact on Farzana as a girl growing up in her culture and discussing whether they found it hard to move away from their heavily rooted Pakistani ways in a western country. Women will also reflect on their experiences.

We will discuss why it’s important to not shy away from our past but to embrace it. Farzana wrote her grandfather’s story for Pen To Print and won that competition and this story empowered her the most!

Farzana found her voice when she began sharing her voice through her writing, and she is now on a mission to empower other women by hearing their stories and helping them to write them down.

Farzana believes every woman has a story inside her, and in ‘Hear My Voice’ she’ll inspire and encourage you, to tell it.

Join Farzana for a fun, sentimental and uplifting series of ten workshops that aim to combine the daily struggles and ambitions of women everywhere, with an extra dose of creative writing.

This course is suitable for women writers and those who identify as women.
