Writing Joy

In a world where we are constantly inundated with statistics, news reports and viral social media posts depicting the horrors, inequities and misfortunes that plague us, a commitment to joy is an act of radical intentionality! Join Vuyokazi Ngemntu to explore tools, devices and exercises to help access and articulate moments of delight, contentment and elation on the page. Drawing inspiration from our lived experiences in the form of childhood memories, intimate relationships and observations of the world around us, let’s lay down our burdens, unmask our pain and find bliss in both the mundane and the symbolic, celebrating the gift of life through poetry, experimental prose and other delightful forms of expression that will help us tap into our innately joyful state.
