Anger is just anger. It isn’t good. It isn’t bad. It just is. What you do with it is what matters. It’s like anything else. You can use it to build or to destroy. You just have to make the choice.
– Jim Butcher, White Night
We don’t often look at anger as a tool to heal. But, what if it could be? Anger can wake us up. It can tell us something important.
Join us in a four-part workshop series to explore the theme of anger through the written word, within a supportive community. No writing experience required. Activities will include mindfulness practices, writing exercises, and reflective practices.
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 Adults is a 4-part program hosted on Tuesdays from 1:30-3:00pm, starting on January 26th.
