Description

Dive into writing and discover your own rhythms, use your own language, and tell your own story, whether you are just keeping a journal or have a memoir in mind.

Nancy Slonim Aronie says, “I can’t teach writing. I don’t think anyone can. But I can make it safe and I’ve learned when people feel safe, they go deep. The writing gets more powerful, the heart goes deeper, and the words flow faster. Getting the story of your life out of your body means you don’t have to carry the weight of it around anymore. When people ask if it’s therapy, I answer, ‘No, it’s therapeutic to write the truth.’”

This workshop provides a safe, inviting place where you can sound like you, use your own language with your own rhythms, and write your own story. Throughout the week, we will laugh, we will cry, and we will write.
