WRITING WORKSHOPS IN THE UK & US

Writing workshop for Masala Monologues, spicy stories from South Asian women
WORKSHOP AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY

Masala Monologues workshops are safe spaces to explore our stories. Previous workshop attendees have called them “healing spaces.” And that’s exactly what they are. It’s a safe space for us to open up, talk to each other and explore the taboos as well as the richness that comes with being part of South Asian culture. We’ve run a series of writing workshops in London & the US over the past two years, where womxn came together, opened up to each other & wrote stories from their life experiences. These stories were then shaped and transformed into two theatre shows.

What happens in a writing workshop?

In the workshops, you’ll learn to tap into deep personal cultural experiences. Stories about the taboos that you’ve faced in your life, told from your unique cultural point of view. You’ll be able to talk to others who totally “get it”. And turn your stories into monologues. Which could then feature in future theatre productions of Masala Monologues.

“Being asked to explore how my culture and sexuality intersected helped unlock things that I would’ve otherwise have left unexamined.”
