  • This 3 hour workshop introduces the power of journaling for emotional balance and self growth, offering techniques and tools to expand our relationship with the written word as a path to healing and discovering who we are and what we believe. The class will cover a broad overview of key principals of journaling, including addressing issues such as privacy, how to write authentically, and how and why we should explore our honest feelings on the page without fear or feeling censored by others. Creativity, playful discovery, and how to mine nuggets of wisdom that are already within are primary themes, as well as how to keep up the discipline of writing daily and make it a joy to journal.  Great for writers seeking more honesty in their work, or anyone who is interested in finding deeper truths in the story of their lives.

    Instructor: Ginny East Shaddock: MFA in Creative writing, E-RYT-500. Author of My Million Dollar Donkey (Memoir)
