Michelle Vainright (they,them)

Michelle explores writing in the river with deep curiosity and openness—to them, writing is a pleasurable tool for survival, a way to explore the act of noticing, and what can be learned when we feel our feelings. A 20-something trying to find their way in a beautiful world in chaos. Holding space is one of Michelle’s deepest callings, in a time where connection is essential. They are constantly learning what holding space looks like in a radically changing world. Their hope is to hold the space of River Writing in the way it is—not only as a practice but as a community.
