Author Sandra Marinella (The Story You Need to Tell) leads a workshop on writing and exploring how writing your story can support you as you face all kinds of life changes—a move, a job change, an empty nest, 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 in the way we choose (poems, journaling, blogs, memoirs, etc.) while learning writing practices that lead toward resilience and creativity. This four-session interactive workshop will allow you to delve into change and positive ways to manage it. There will be opportunities to share your writing in a nurturing environment. Writers of all levels, novice to advanced, are welcome.
