Writing Alchemy Episode 7 Summary

This episode departs from the usual Writing Alchemy format to focus on the topic of self-love in a workshop-style collaboration between Fay Onyx and Liz Cruz that explores barriers to self-love and self-love practices as experienced by people living at the intersections of oppression. For this episode they are joined by Tobi Hill-Meyer, who reads her erotic story, “Self Reflection,” which explores the themes of self-love and self-talk in a rather surprising way.

Story: “Self Reflection” by Tobi Hill-Meyer
Collaborator: Coach and consultant Liz Cruz
