Event Details

We all have experienced life events that have affected our lives and still continue to have influence
over us. Writing expressively can help us feel better because it focuses, organizes, and clarifies
those experiences. Writing out our deepest feelings, even the secrets where we feel shame, helps
to bring closure, restore relationships with others and with ourselves, and enable us to be active
creators of our own life stories. In this workshop, we will find the words to heal.


This is a mixed-level writing workshop, open to individuals 18+, and is intended for participants
who have done significant work on confronting one's emotional upheavals and traumas. If there’s a
story you’re wanting to tell, but are having a difficult time finding the language or approach, we will
do a series of breathing exercises to ground you in your body, generative writing exercises to help
you resource material from your life, and writing prompts to give your storytelling direction.
