Parent/Writer: Making a creative life with Pooja Makhijani

How do lead caregivers squeeze in time to cultivate their craft between childcare, home care, and a day job?

This two-hour workshop for writers (or other creative professionals) will offer practical strategies for staying fulfilled as an artist and a parent.

We will read a number of short essays and poems about the intersection of art and care work, and write and share several of our own pieces (created in workshop)!

This workshop will not only arm you with time management and goal-setting tools, but will also help you battle impostor syndrome and recognize the importance of self-care.

All guests for this event have the option to drop off their children at the Trehaus Kids' Atelier for the duration of the event at a special event rate of $15 per child.

Pooja Makhijani is the editor of Under Her Skin: How Girls Experience Race in America (Seal Press), an anthology of essays by women that explores the complex ways in which race shapes American lives and families. She is also the author of Mama’s Saris (Little Brown Books for Young Readers), a picture book. Her bylines have appeared in The New York Times, The Village Voice, The Rumpus, Serious Eats, Paste Magazine, Asymptote, The Washington Post, Lucky Peach, and BuzzFeed
among others.

Pooja lives in Singapore with her partner, her daughter, an antique typewriter, and too many books.
