Writing Your Truth

Please note that the October 13th date of Writing Your Truth has been cancelled. Please join Elise on Thursday, December 8 for the next poetry workshop. 

While most of us don’t think of ourselves as poets, in a safe space and with the guidance of a gifted facilitator, we can unleash the poetry that resides within us.

The benefits of creative expression as a path to healing are well known. Join us to experience the powerful, mysterious and often surprising gifts that emerge as you listen to healing poetry and then begin to write. You may not think of yourselves as a poet when you arrive, but you may just think so when you leave.

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.

Suggested donation: $20
