pain_writingWe will explore what Christianity (and other faiths) mean by hope and how we can move toward that hope through writing that explores the very pain we’re in. Class members will learn effective writing techniques and use them to tell their own stories as they seek daylight at the end of their darkness. They will share their writing with others in the class and have a chance to learn from each other’s experiences.
