SC Writes for YACS: What’s Your Story?
Welcome back to SC Writes for YACS, where we will deepen our writing and sharing in a safe and supportive environment. No writing experience required. Activities will include mindfulness practices, writing exercises, and reflective practices. We will focus on Sharing Your Story in our writing.
Group members are encouraged to attend all sessions, but missing one meeting is fine. This is a limited series with limited capacity and attendance is important in our effort to foster community and build an open space for sharing.
SC Writes for Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YACS) is a 4-part program hosted on weekly on Tuesdays from 1:30-3:00pm ET, starting on October 5th, 2021.
- October 5, 12, 19 & 26
Suggested Donation: $10/session or $35/series
