How can you use writing as a means of healing, self-care, and self-development?

In this class participants will be introduced to a variety of techniques (journaling, free-writing, memoir, biblio-poetry, creative writing, reflective writing, metaphors, group writing) through hands-on exercises. The healing potential of reading practices will also be considered. 

Participants will leave with a new set of tools to help cope with life’s challenges.

Parenting brings countless hopes and worries. But when external factors create fear and cast a shadow long and deep across motherhood, what happens to the act of mothering? Through personal and academic essays and poetry from Canada, the United States, and Palestine, these authors explore what it means to mother through times of struggle, uncertainty, danger, and change.
