Creative Writing and Poetry Workshop

It can be hard to express all the emotions you're feeling after you or a loved one's cancer diagnosis. However, keeping feelings inside can increase stress and its impact on our bodies. Writing can be an effective safe and and private way to handle the many different emotions triggered by cancer.

In this workshop, participants will experiment with poems, short prose, journaling and brainstorming activities, mini comics, and more as they pursue their own writing goals. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in the writing process, share their work with fellow writers if they feel comfortable, and take reusable writing prompts and healthy writing habits into their everyday lives. To get the most out of the workshop, please try to attend all sessions.
