Writing Through Grief Workshops

Tuesdays, August 14 through September 18, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Writing Through Grief is a six-week workshop which utilizes writing as a catalyst to attend to and heal grief. Each week a theme is offered, pieces of prose and poetry are read, and prompts are presented to aid in the process of writing. Participants have an opportunity to share their own writing, but only as they wish to. This workshop is open to the community, and everyone is welcome to attend as few or as many weeks as is helpful to them.
To register, call Julie D. or Gretchen at 707-267-9801.  Click here for more information about this workshop series.
