The Story You Need to Tell with Sandra Marinella: Writing Your Story Amid Change and Challenges

This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.

Your story matters, especially during tough times. This workshop will explore how writing your story can support you as you face difficult changes—a job loss, isolation amid COVID-19, a change of fortune, the loss of a loved one, a change in health, or the process of aging. Let’s discover how to find our words and write our stories forward. This interactive workshop will allow you to delve into change and positive ways to manage it. Sharing of writing is optional in this nurturing environment. Writers of all levels are welcome.

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.
