SC Writes for YACS
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.
Stay tuned for the theme of this SC Writes series.
Group members are encouraged to attend all sessions, but missing one session is fine. This series has limited capacity and therefore attendance is important. To illustrate, we use all sessions to foster community and build an open space for sharing.
SC Writes for Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YACS) is a 4-part program series. The series originally scheduled for September/October has been moved to October. The upcoming series dates are:
- October 4
- October 11
- October 18
- October 25
Suggested Donation: $10/session or $35/series
