Online Workshop: Yourself as Other, August 15

Yourself as Other: A Writing to Heal Workshop

Join us online Sunday, August 15, 1:30 to 4:30 pm EDT, for our next writing to heal workshop!

Do you want to learn how to reflect inwards and unlock what you keep hidden, even from yourself? Find out how expressive writing leads to deeper self-acceptance and healing.

In this online workshop, you will move through a series of writing prompts designed to explore yourself as “other.” Using writing as a way to examine emotional truths, you will: 

  • Learn techniques for restorying self
  • Explore approaches to self-reflexive writing
  • Review contexts where writing is being used for personal development
  • Share your writing with the instructor and participants (on a voluntary basis and as time permits)

Additional Details

Please bring a notebook or paper, and a pen or pencil. You will be writing during this workshop. You may also use your computer to write, however writing by hand is strongly recommended. 

Kat McNichol, Editor-in-Chief of Dreamers Creative Writing, presents this Writing to Heal Workshop Series. Participants can take all workshops or any workshop. These workshops do not need to be done in order and even if you miss one, you can still take the next one. Each workshop has a unique theme. Therapeutic writing is intended to be an ongoing practice, much like yoga or meditation. The more often you practice, the better your words will flow onto the page.
