This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.
From the host: “Your story matters. This workshop will explore the power of our personal stories and positive writing. In these four sessions we will embark on finding, writing, and sharing our stories while learning writing practices that lead us to personal resilience and renewal. We will hone our unique voice, learn how to reframe challenging stories, and explore how to bring positive insights to our work. There will be prompts to inspire your writing as well as opportunities to share your work in an accepting environment. No writing experience is necessary. Join us to write the stories you need to tell. Join us for inspiration, connection, and community. Enrollment is limited."
Materials for the class: Please bring a pen and a journal/notebook/computer to write on. Many of the activities come from
The Story You Need to Tell. If you have a copy, please bring it as well, but it is not required. If you don’t have a copy of Sandra's book The Story You Need to Tell: Writing to Heal from Trauma, Illness, or Loss, please consider purchasing a copy here.
