Writing for Healing
Writers often claim (and research supports) that writing can have healing properties as we seek to make sense of and give voice to experiences and events of our lives. In this workshop we will talk a bit about how writing for healing works and what role it can play in our lives; then we will work through exercises and prompts that allow writers to move more deeply into the writing-for-healing process. Throughout, we will step back to reflect on how writing can facilitate our own healing, explore ways of using writing to facilitate the healing of others and consider what we do with this “private” writing if we want to take it further into a more public sphere. This workshop is intended for anyone who wishes to explore their own healing through writing, as well as those who wish to facilitate the process in others.
