In this four-week class, we will examine how the writing process can serve as a healing tool for adversity and trauma. We will analyze poems, essays, articles and book excerpts that demonstrate the transformative power of personal narrative. We will look not only at examples of the healing-through-writing genre, but also at the theory behind the process of it. Each class will include a writing prompt. Students will have the option to share their prompts for on-the-spot feedback in a supportive environment.

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
