Writing to Thrive: A Creative Response to Trauma
Join writer and poet Rhonda Rosenheck for a writing workshop, Writing to Thrive: A Creative Response to Trauma at the Waterford Public Library. Sessions run from 5-6:30 pm and are the first three Thursdays of November: the 2nd, 9th and 16th.
Writing can awaken your creative impulse during and after loss, illness and other traumas. Applying the mighty pen to harshly painful experiences can lead you up the path of healing and self-love. You’ll be offered starting points (called prompts) and opportunities to try different forms and then focus on the genre you choose. Each of the three 90-minute workshops will include fresh samples for inspiration, time to write, encouragement, and optional sharing in an appreciative, safe environment. No writing experience necessary; teens through seniors welcome. Bring your favorite writing implements (e.g. paper and pen, a journal, a laptop computer).
Call to register for any or all session at (518) 237-0891.
