What is collective grief? How can writing in communal creative spaces open pathways for us to explore what collective grief sounds like, feels like, settles like, heals like, and looks like? How does writing and sharing stories help grief move through us, connect us, and transform us? In times of such devastating, complex, and disorienting loss, we can choose to sit together. We can choose to heal together. This 3-hour generative writing workshop will hold space for all that blank pages call us to pour onto them in relationship to loss. We will ground together, feel together, write together, and very probably weep together. We will also touch into gratitude, the tender partner of grief. Writers can expect warm, compassionate, and grounding facilitation that holds space for whatever calls you to this workshop. Through an exploration of various texts and a variety of writing prompts for all modes of writing, we will take collective deep dives and surface in warm waters to find we are not alone. All writers are welcome.
We want our writing classes to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income and background. We understand that our tuition structure can present obstacles for some people. Our Access Program offers writing class registrations at a reduced rate. The access program for writing classes covers 60% of the class tuition. Most writing classes have at least one access spot available. Contact Susan Moore at email@example.com if you would like to take a writing class at the Access Rate.
