“Only when I began writing did I start living”

Writing can free you from what has been holding you back. It offers reflection and release, an opportunity to process emotions and finally give them a home outside of you, on the page. When our messy stories and heavy emotions hit the page, there is a true cathartic release of stress.

On Saturday, January 27, join me at The Carleton Place Collective for an intimate Poetry Therapy Workshop. I will guide you with prompts and playful practices with a focus on autobiographical and reflective themes. Feel the healing power of the poetic structure and the words it pulls from your depths.

No writing experience necessary. This is NOT a poetry “writing” workshop but rather a therapeutic, creative experience. No rules. No stress. This will be a safe and brave space for those who feel pulled to use writing to bring a little more peace to their hearts.

Saturday, January 27
1:00 – 3:00 pm
