About Y-WE Write 2022

Let's not even play, it's been a rough couple of years and stress lives in our bodies. Join us to write it out and release it into the universe! Different types of writing can help realign us with our bodies, our dreams, our creation, and our joy. Join Naa Akua and Meera Bhardwaj for a 7-day immersive experience at Y-WE Write Day Camp the first week of August 2022, Monday - Sunday.

Part of each day will be spent in separate 'Tracks,' each with a different focus and writer/facilitator This year we're offering: Poetry in the Body w/ Jessica Rae Bergamino, Songwriting with Grace Love, and Screenwriting with Rose McAleese.
