Short Memoir Workshop @ Delridge Library – VENUE CHANGE
Jan 20 @ 4:00 pm – 5:20 pm

Memoir Class in West Seattle

This coming Valentine’s Day, reach beyond the chocolates and flowers and give someone you love something priceless: the gift of your story.

Join writing teacher Martin Piccoli in a two-part writing workshop focused on crafting a short memoir that celebrates the positive impact someone has had on your life. In this class, you will review the basics of memoir, select and shape a personal story you wish to share, and compose your piece. (Much of your independent writing will be completed in the two weeks between the classes, so, yes, there’s homework.)
When this workshop concludes, you will have a solid draft of your story ready to give a friend, a parent, a sibling, a partner, a spouse (along with those chocolates?)–or to keep just for yourself.
West Seattle resident Martin Piccoli is your host for this event. He’s spent the last 25 years teaching writing in the public schools of Seattle, Columbus, Ohio, and Brooklyn. This year he’s taking time out of the classroom to do some personal writing, and hopes with this workshop he can help you do the same.

This workshop is open to the public, though seating will be limited.
The classes will be held at NEW VENUE – DELRIDGE LIBRARY
The classes run from 4pm – 5:20pm
The first class is on Saturday, January 20.
The second class is on Saturday, February 3.
Please bring something to write with, analog or digital.

Wednesday, February 7th @ 9 am

Prospective parents, please note:

1) Please enroll your future Kindergartener as soon as possible because we are already setting budgets and determining staffing. Please follow this link.

Playshop @ Fauntleroy Schoolhouse
Apr 22 @ 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm

April 22nd

12:30-4:00 pm

Fauntleroy Schoolhouse
9131 California Ave. SW

In this half-day playshop, we will dive into activities that bring our awareness to what we create from fear. Then we will shift our focus from fear to creating fun thus opening ourselves up to reinventing our lives. The activities are a mix of improv games and scenes, and activities that engage our body’s intelligence for full expression. No experience necessary.

Do you want to:

PLAY through your issues instead of working hard on them?

LEARN to use improv as a way to practice creating what you really want?

ACT out your dreams and conjure fun?!

YES, AND your experience, and discover how loving yourself can be a playful, embodied practice in creative expression?

If yes, then join us in improv games and mind/body centering activities as we play and uncover old unconscious patterns and stories. Then we’ll apply the simple “Yes, And” rule of improv: We’ll say YES to them, and dive in adding humour and fun. Then we’ll add the AND to create a new story of our choosing.

I use presence and play to facilitate the discovery of what you really want. Then we use improv to practice co-creating your dreams so that you can experience the feeling of receiving what you really want.

Come play with us and begin co-creating your new story! RSVP required. $37 per person if you pay online through Meet Up: www.meetup.com/PLAY-IT-OUT/. $35 if you pay cash at the door. Please RSVP to me via e-mail if you plan to pay cash at the door: playitoutimprov@outlook.com.

Sanislo Elementary dinner/auction @ Masonic Center

You are invited! Come All Around the World with us!

Thanks to the community support of Sanislo Elementary’s auction last year, we kicked our $5,000 goal to the curb and raised $15,000!

This windfall provided a mindfulness program, increased teacher stipends, created a ‘book fair bucks’ program and is affording scholarships to kids in need so they can participate in after-school enrichment! YOU, yes YOU, helped make this happen!

Let’s do it again!

Our annual auction is just around the corner and we hope you can join us once again in supporting educational equity.

Details:

– All Around the World Auction

– Saturday, June 2nd from 6 pm-10 pm

– Alki Masonic Center, 4736 40th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116

– Silent Auction

– Dinner and TWO Drink Tickets Included!

– A special performance by Seattle Kokon Taiko Japanese Drummers, a DJ, Dancing and more!

You can reserve your tickets online, or, if you can’t make it but would like to donate, you can do that through the link below as well.

Donations to our auction make a significant impact in the education of our kids. With over 70% of our families living in poverty, our school community simply cannot raise these essential funds alone. We hope to see you there!

Low-cost Life Jacket Sale @ Southwest Pool
Jun 9 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

From Seattle Parks and Recreation:

The sun is emerging from behind the clouds, the weather is getting warmer, and summer is just around the corner. Soon, many community members will be drawn to pools, beaches, and water sports across the region. And as water recreation increases, water safety becomes especially important. According to the Center for Disease Control, over 4,000 people drown each year in the United States, and among children between the ages of 1 and 14, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death.

Life jackets save lives, and Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is partnering with Seattle Children’s Hospital, the National Safe Boating Council, and Mustang Survival to host low-cost life jacket sales at pool locations across Seattle. Attend one of six life jacket sales to buy discounted life jackets for you and your family. Infant and youth size life jackets are $20, adult sizes are $30, and families who qualify for SPR scholarships pay $10 for any life jacket size.

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body @ Admiral Church

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body
Thursdays in June (14, 21, 28)
6:30- 8:00pm at Admiral Church

— To Register, email officemgr@admiralchurch.org-

This workshop series is a basic primer on current theory about gender (distinct from sex assignment and
sexual orientation) and how it relates to everyone, whether trans*, gender fluid, cis-gender, non-binary, etc. 

We will focus on our own experiences of identifying with our gender, of having our gender expression
policed by others (and ourselves), and the church’s role in supporting human freedom around gender
identity and expression. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of
what it means to be an ally and co-conspirator with trans* and gender non-conforming folx, and the
gifts that progressive Christian theology can bring to this work.

Nurturing the Environment and Food Access workshop @ Camp Long
Jun 16 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

DNDA’s Let’s Talk Race Series 2018‎: Nurturing the Environment and Food Access Workshop. Coming up on June 16th, 1–6 pm. Register in advance at tinyurl.com/RaceSeries5

What would it look like to have equitable access to food that nourishes our bodies and nourishes the land? Join us at Camp Long to talk about race in the context of Nurturing the Environment and Food Access. This outdoor workshop will create space for community members to engage in courageous conversations that rely on our vulnerability rather than on instant resolutions. This event will explore how our food systems are built upon the racial injustices of slavery, and how environmental protection is inseparable from indigenous sovereignty. By exposing histories of white supremacy and colonialism in the United States, we can reveal their impacts today. Through timelines, open dialogue, and circle practice, participants will share stories of food traditions and connections to land that build bridges across difference and promote healing.

With facilitators Nat Mengist and Lucia Santos

First showing in the area of the screening LIKE.

A one-hour documentary about the impact of social media on our lives.

Seattle Writes (for teens): Piloting the Category Five Hurricane: Getting Through Tough Times @ High Point Library
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the High Point Library:

Teens are invited to join poet Ann Teplick in a poetry-writing workshop that explores the themes of self-care and resilience.

In this poetry-writing workshop for teens, we will explore the themes of self-care and resilience. In a world where, in addition to our own personal challenges, we witness the struggles of those whom we love, and of those whom we haven’t had the good fortune to meet; in a world where overwhelm is often the wave that spins us to our outer limits—what brings us to solid ground?

In two workshops at the High Point and Delridge Branches, teens will read and be inspired to respond to the work of poets such as Li-Young Lee, Nikki Giovanni, Naomi Shihab Nye, Suheir Hammad, Rumi, Gretel Ehrlich, Ntozake Shange, David Wagoner, Francisco X. Alarcon, and more. The material for each workshop will be different. Please attend one or both! All participants are invited to read and celebrate their work on Sunday November 4th from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Highpoint Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Do join us!

Ann Teplick is a Seattle poet, playwright, prose writer, and teaching artist. She writes with youth at Seattle Children’s Hospital, through Writers in the Schools; Child Study Treatment Center, through Pongo Teen Writing; and at Coyote Central. She’s received support from Artist Trust, Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, 4Culture, and The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her writing has appeared in Raven Chronicles, Crab Creek Review, The Louisville Review, Drash, Spartan, Hunger Mountain, Jack Straw Writers’ Anthology, 4Culture’s Poetry on the Busses, and more. Her plays have been showcased in Washington, Oregon, and Nova Scotia. She is currently working on a young-adult novel in poems where resilience and self-care save the day in the face of tragedy.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. This workshop is intended for teens. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class.
