This workshop will take place before the start of the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday season. As this can be a particularly difficult time for some, it is a good time for the Writing for Healing workshop. Writing is a wonderful tool for organizing thoughts and expressing feelings in a constructive and safe way. Recording thoughts, experiences, and feelings in a daily journal, writing letters, starting a memoir or a collection of poetry are just some of the ways that writing can help with healing. In this workshop, we will discuss the benefits of writing in coping with emotional and/or physical pain. Participants will be invited to do some writing in response to prompts and to share if they wish to do so. We will also explore ideas on how to turn writing into projects or finished products to share with others. This workshop is designed to be a supportive and nurturing experience to encourage creativity and self-expression.
