About the Session
Do you have stories to unravel and unpack? Process-focused writing is a powerful tool for healing. This interactive session will focus on creative writing as an accessible tool for healing, self-care, and wellness, particularly in community settings. Participants will engage in a supportive, creative truth-sharing process and learn how to implement such activities in other settings. This session is ideal for writers on their own healing journeys, as well as educators, activists, and justice oriented artists aiming to better support their communities. This session will center the experiences of marginalized groups most in need of creative healing opportunities and interventions. Please note: while this session will take place in person, the fellow will be presenting through Zoom.
