At a Loss: A Grief Writing Workshop

Aug 6, 2020 • 7:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

During COVID-19, loss and grief can encompass many forms and have a habit of rendering us mute. But when we put our sadness into words, we tap into the healing process and begin to make sense of our pain. Writing our grief can reveal the darkest corners of our loss, or simply put tears on paper.

In a workshop led by essayist Karen Paul, read works from authors who write about grief, write from prompts, and share your words with the group.

Karen is an essayist and memoirist whose work has been published in Lilith, The Washington Post, Modern Loss, and other sites. She teaches grief writing workshops and is writing a memoir on grief and widowhood.

In order to ensure a safe, comfortable, and supportive writing and sharing environment, this class will be capped at a limited number of participants. No one will be turned away from any of our classes due to lack of funds. For more information, please contact Leila.
