Tap into the healing properties of nature in a playful, supportive environment in this spring-themed writing workshop led by a therapeutic writing facilitator. Weather permitting, we will write under the stars on the Center’s rooftop; otherwise, we’ll bring nature indoors.

No writing experience necessary, just an open mind.

All materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring any journals or notebooks that you would like to use.
