Liberating Ourselves from the Voices Within:
A Writer's Workshop for
People of Color

May 12th, 19th, and 26th 2022
(June 23rd, 2022 optional)
8:30 - 12:00 PM PST / 11:30 - 3:00 PM EST

Have you ever heard yourself saying, “I should write a book”, but never got around to it? Or maybe someone else told you, “You should write a book about it”, but you never did. Are you bogged down with negative self-talk, keeping you from believing it’s possible? In this 3-day workshop (May 12th, 19th, and 26th with an optional 4th day on June 23rd), you will uncover how you are getting in your own way from doing one thing you’ve always wanted to do… write a book.

Dr. Caprice D. Hollins will take you through a process that shifts your thinking from, “I don’t have time”, “I’m not qualified”, and “I don’t have the credentials”, to believing in the possibilities. She will help you move your thinking from, “Who am I to write a book?” to “Who am I not to?”

Not only will you build community with other People of Color who share similar challenges, you will begin writing your first (but hopefully not your last) book. Together we will dig deep into the stories we’ve been telling ourselves and the stories others have told us about the worthiness of telling our own stories. We'll connect how much of what we’ve been told and believed, correlates to racism. We will confront these messages, so our stories turn into a book rather than a barrier.

Dr. Hollins knows what it’s like to internalize oppressive voices, the ones that keep us from manifesting our true potential. She understands what’s it’s like to question and doubt her abilities. And she’s certainly familiar with the problem of being too busy to find the time. The only difference is, she’s fighting back. As result, she’s co-authored one book and in April will be working on the second edition of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Strategies for Facilitating Conversations on Race co-authored by her business partner, Ilsa Govan. And she has another book coming out in October! Who better to help you get unstuck than someone who has been there before, and in some ways, still is?

On a Side Note: I can’t wait to share parts of my writing journey with you, and help you begin yours. I know You’ve Got a Lot to Give...So, Give It! I’m so excited on your behalf that the world will finally get to see your brilliance in writing!

As a result of this workshop, you will leave with…

  • The confidence to write your first book

  • A clear understanding of what you want to write about

  • An outline of your chapters

  • The beginning of a book

  • A community of PoC writers
