The past months have brought drastic changes to our everyday lives. Beneath those changes is an undercurrent of loss, not just related to a physical death, but other types of what Pauline Boss calls "ambiguous", such as loss of relationships, cancelled events, or unfulfilled dreams. In this workshop, we will use poetry, short fiction and prose to examine loss from a variety of viewpoints.
How do we wade into the waters of that grief and encounter those experiences? Without drowning, do you swim or stay there? —- David Kessler.

*Please note: This is not a therapy session, but as always, writing is considered therapeutic.
