Join via Zoom Wednesdays 1 p.m. PST/ 3 p.m. CST/ 4 p.m. EST
Creative writing can inspire wellness! healing! insights! With each Wednesday session, we start with a brief meditation and follow with a poem or an excerpt of an essay. The weekly prompts are informed by the poems or essays. After a timed writing period, reading back your writing is optional.
We listen, and thank, before moving on to the next participant.
It’s a sacred hour. We allow our inner dialogues to land on the page without editing. (The unconscious creates / the ego edits.)
In the past 10 years, medical professionals and clinicians have recognized the
therapeutic value of creative writing. A discipline once practiced only in college
classrooms with a singular goal of publication in top-flight literary journals or
academic presses, creative writing is now recognized as a tool for healing,
maintaining wellness, and expressing the buried memories of trauma.
