EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Writing for Wellness

Tuesday July 30, 2019
5:00 PM until 7:00 PM


This workshop is designed to help participants learn how to use writing as a tool for coping, deeper insight and expression.  In each workshop, participants are invited to engage in a series of writing activities that are pragmatic and expressive: exercises that they can continue to use long after the workshop is over, for their own growth and development. The workshops are lively, with varied exercises and lots of time for discussion to process how the activities worked for the participants and how they might be expanded upon or adapted for their private use. 

Participants are encouraged to keep journals, which we will start using immediately. At the beginning we will talk a little about the research surrounding using writing as a wellness tool, as a way of providing evidence and context for how effective writing can be as a tool.  Participants will be invited to share their thoughts and writing, but will not be expected to share anything that feels too personal.
