Full of the drama and verve with which she illuminated the Shakespearean canvas of Hamnet, Maggie O’Farrell brings the world of Renaissance Italy to jewel-bright life and offers an unforgettable portrait of a resilient young woman’s battle for her very survival.

In 2020, Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere was adapted into a popular limited series on Hulu, starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. Following its nationwide success, Ng’s latest work, Our Missing Hearts, explores the ways that supposedly civilized communities can pretend to ignore the most searing injustice.

One of the goals of capitalism is to make every creation a commodity to be sold. This is why, particularly for those of us who identify outside of or beyond paradigms centered around commerce – and those of us who are descendants of people called subhuman often struggle to locate pure pleasure, creativity and joy within ourselves and our writing practices. This generative webinar offers a joyous space with a mixture of lecture, meditation and grounding rituals, writing practices, exercises and prompts for reflection. Our mission, should we choose to accept it, will be to reject past-, pain- and trauma-centered narratives and re-center the expansiveness of what we can create when we fill ourselves (and each other) up with the sacred essence of bliss, possibility and inspiration.
