Pain is relevant. No matter how often we try to stuff it in a box, it somehow rears its ugly head again and again. But pain has a deeper purpose when we allow ourselves to learn from it. One of the most therapeutic things we can do is write about pain. Getting the ugliness of life’s mishaps on paper and sharing the events that hurt us deeply may seem like a daunting task. Yet in this age of superheroes, we can put on our capes, pick up our pens, and write about pain. When we do so, we not only change our own lives, we comfort and encourage others who have had similar experiences.

If you’ve wanted to write about painful memoriesbut at the same time, haven’t wanted to, or haven’t known how to, this workshop is the antidote to the paralysis that can hold us captive. In this workshop we will discover our writer’s kryptonite and learn how to liberate our pens to craft an authentic story that tells the truth about pain and darkness while pointing the way toward the light of lessons learned. Together, arm in arm, we will walk through a seven-step writing journey, easing us from the actual event to sharing the poignant points of the story in an outline format. At the end of this workshop we will capture our riveting stories on paper, enabling us to spread wings that let us leap over our tall buildings of pain in a single bound. Those who would like to share their successes by reading aloud will have the opportunity, but sharing will absolutely be optional and neither expected nor required. Come get in touch with your inner super writing power and learn to write about painful memories faster than a speeding bullet. Together, we will battle the darkness to prove that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.
