People have long turned to storytelling to understand themselves and the world, and writing can be a powerful way for individuals affected by mental illness to give voice to their experiences. This six-week workshop will provide a space for those who have experienced mental illness—whether themselves or through a loved one—to explore fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction writing. The workshop will be structured around group interest, but will give all participants the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their writing. Relevant readings, discussions, and exercises will also be included. This workshop aims to embrace a variety of perspectives, and both new and experienced writers are welcome to join us.
Register for the next workshop at email@example.com or 608.249.7188.
Tuesdays, 6:30-7:30 pm
July 8th – August 12th
