with Laura Stavoe Saturday, January 23 Workshop Session 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Monday, February 1 Optional Follow-up 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm We know grieving is part of healthy living, but we aren’t always taught how to grieve. In this half-day workshop, participants will learn tools and tenets for using creative writing as a way to honor loss. We will read examples from literature as a way to begin our own work. And then we will write together. Participants will leave the workshop with many ideas and strategies for future writing. This workshop includes some writing time away from the computer. An optional second meeting will also be available where we can share writing that comes from the workshop with each other. Suggested $25 donation
