Creative Writing for Social Justice and Personal Wellbeing

Online Workshop July 21, 22, 23, 24

Space is limited.   Registration deadline June 21

Words are power. If ever there was a time to advocate and honor the written word in service of justice and self-care, that time is now. Censorship is becoming the norm, important stories are being erased, and the deluge of bad news can be overwhelming.

This online workshop will explore the use of creative writing for:

  1. social justice: creative writing offers a way to illuminate injustice, and advocate and inspire social change.
  2. personal transformation: creative writing can help us to discover our stories, make meaning of our lives and facilitate healing.
