A weekend workshop for writers ready to receive peer and mentor feedback on a complete manuscript.
A free guided writing seminar for caregivers.
Before you began this dementia journey with your loved one, could you have even imagined how your life and relationships would change? The tenderness. The pain. The anxiety. The sense of purpose. The loss of identity. The love. Your story is an important one. Pauletta Hansel is the author of Palindrome, a poetry collection written in response to her mother's dementia. She leads this nurturing and inspiring writing session as an opportunity to use writing to reflect on your own journey, and to share as much or as little as you choose in a supportive and safe circle of other caregivers. No previous writing experience is necessary; participants of previous workshops are welcome to return.
Registration required. Space is limited.
Facilitator: Pauletta Hansel
