Writing in Community
People in difficult circumstances often feel isolated, alone, unsupported. A writing community can create a sense of trust, energy, and affirmation among participants. Writing in Community will guide writers in ways to build shared ownership within a writing group, highlight ways to release emotions and creativity via the written word, and show how facilitators and learners walk that path together.
In this fun, challenging all-day workshop, you will learn how to
�� create a community of writers
�� foster physical and emotional well-being through poetry and prose
�� facilitate effectively working with diverse populations, including patients, caregivers, substance abusers, people in homeless shelters, prisoners, literacy students, the unemployed and others
�� design effective, site-specific programs
�� approach institutions/facilities to offer your writing group facilitation
�� volunteer or charge for your time
�� stay connected with other writing group facilitators in the are
Workshop leaders Grey Brown and Richard Krawiec have a combined 50 years of experience training writers in how to teach in alternative settings. Participants will receive a training certificate, and may be invited to participate in writing projects throughout the Triangle.Seating is limited. Reservations are required.
