Writing about our own experiences can sometimes trigger trauma and distress. How do we write about the ‘hard stuff’, and how can this writing help others? Narrative therapist Tom Hamilton leads this panel of diverse writers, who explore the vast array of emotions and experiences that make up our lives in their poetry, plays and articles. The panel comprises award-winning theatre director and playwright Shane Bosher, performance poet, actor and writer Daniel Goodwin, artist and writer Vanessa Mei Crofsky and poet essa may ranapiri. Chaired by the one and only Tom Hamilton. This event is part of the 2022 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.org.nz
