Through Brave Voice, Kansas Poet Laureate Emerita Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg and acclaimed Rhythm and Blues Singer-Songwriter Kelley Hunt offer collaborative writing and singing workshops, retreats, consultations, and performances. Brave Voice embraces finding, developing and sharing our voices—on the page or out loud—to bring greater vision and resilience to our lives, workplaces, and communities. We know how opening our voice through writing, singing and songwriting enhances our lives, work, and world.
