Sseveral years ago, I traveled to northern Haiti at the request of Medical Ambassadours of Haiti to deliver a series of creative writing workshops in rural communities.
Despite living in what is considered one of the poorest country in the world, Haitians had expressed a desire to tell their personal stories in their own native language – Kreyole.
With the help of a translator, our small team completed nine workshops in 16 days, reaching about 140 people in three provinces of Haiti. Throughout it all, I recorded my thoughts and photos on my blog, and wrote about the experience in the article, The Write Stuff. (Saltscapes Magazine)
