The Write Prescription: The Healing Power of Storytelling
With Judith Hannan
It can happen in a single moment or over time, but our lives shift. What we
cannot control—illness, trauma, loss, mystery—disrupts the narrative we
have been writing for ourselves. We become strangers to ourselves and
isolated from others. In this workshop on writing about the earthquake or
the slow tremble, prompts will allow us to rummage in our stories, to open
them up to full view, to witness our strengths and opportunities for
transformation. Reading our words back to ourselves and to others adds
deeper meaning and brings us from isolation to community.
No previous writing experience is required. A maximum enrollment of 10
people will ensure intimacy and the opportunity for everyone to participate.
