Using Our Words to Heal Our Wounds
Using Our Words to Heal Our Wounds with Kitty Taylor
Grief is a change in our future story. Whether it’s the death of a loved one (pets included), the end of a relationship, an unexpected move, or the release of a lifelong dream, we live in the aftermath of loss. Maybe we love others more. Maybe we protect ourselves more. Every path of grief is different. Bring a story of change from your own life and turn your pieces into prose. Beginning and intermediate writers welcome.
The capacity for this class is 8 students. This class is presented in collaboration with the John C. Campbell Folk School. There will be an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony hosted from the Folk School campus that students can attend online.
