La Palabra began as a dynamic workshop held in March as part of the annual Women & Creativity series.  The workshop explored the idea ofcreation myths and the female creative principal facilitated by Jessica Helen Lopez.

Writerscreated a literal and metaphorical "body" of work focused on the topography ofthe body in the context of its beauty and flaws, functionality and health,sex-positivity and sexual/gender identity.  Essential to the workshop was an on-going writing promptutilizing a collection of black and white photographs that portray the uniqueand varied landscape of the female body.

For those who can't make it I will share my poetic contributions to this event with y'all online next week...  If you're in ABQ please come and bring donations for Safe House ❤
