This is a workshop to help you learn to use writing as a way to ease into transitional changes in your life. High school to college, college to work, work to retirement, marriage, divorce, etc.
Writing For Well-Being: Heal, Change, or Grow

- transitioning from one stage of life to another
- developing a deeper knowledge of self
- finding home
- writing your story
- learning self-care
- tapping your creativity
