SC Writes for YACS

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. We will meet weekly on Tuesdays from 1:30-3:00pm ET, starting on April 26th, 2022.

Program Dates:

  • April 26
  • May 3, 17 & 24

Suggested Donation: $10/session or $35/series
