Writing can help us make sense of painful, seemingly nonsensical moments. These moments of trauma may stem from loss of a loved one, loss of innocence, addiction, accidents, etc. Putting words on a page allows us to make some sense of these events, but how do we approach those dark moments without retraumatizing ourselves? In addition, how do we write about traumatic events in such a way that the writing holds a greater meaning? What lesson might it impart? Why do these stories matter?
This class is open to all experience levels and will involve a combination of readings, discussion, and writing. You will leave the workshop with some articles and information on how to write about your experience.
