Moving Past Fear to Writing Your Truth

Join us for our Duende District x MahoganyBooks Pieces of Eight Workshop Series, hosted by writer/creative/cultural architect Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi.

About the Workshop:

This holistic & generative workshop will explore writing from a healing and spiritual perspective. Attendees will learn to create writing rituals, engage in writing exercises designed to get at the heart of the matter and reframe the writing process so that fear does not stifle the process.

About the Facilitator:

A long-time lynchpin in the DC arts scene, Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi shares her time between two passions: cultural architecture and teaching.  Kat is a self-defined cultural architect and owner of LiL SoSo Productions, LLC (www.lilsoso.com) where she creates high-quality nightlife experiences, produces and directs conversations on and around progressive culture and aesthetics, and works with artists and creatives of all sorts in a variety of branding and administrative capacities. In addition, she is an associate professor in the English department at Prince George’s Community College where she teaches courses in composition writing, specializes in African-American  and world literatures and also serves as the college’s director for its Book Bridge Project. She is also adjunct faculty at Bowie State University and teaches a course on self promotion and marketing as part of the university’s Visual Communication & Digital Media Arts program.

Kat is working on her first book Seeing-Eye Woman a collection of essays, poems, recipes, rituals, musings and spells that reflect growing up and living as a Black Magickal Woman.
