Writing for My Sanity Therapeutic Writing Workshop

Impact Hub Baltimore

Writing has always been a way of release for me. Once I was diagnosed with PTSD, depression, anxiety disorder and other emotional instabilities, writing became my life. I have kept a journal for over 20 years, I started writing poetry around the same time, these writings have helped me grow and given me the opportunity to evaluate where I was at different points of my life. Throughout the years, I have always looked to connect with others like myself, who suffered trauma or abuse, battled depression or mental illness, and needed a place to relax and relate. I found many local writing workshops but nothing was a good fit, creative writers mixed with those who just wanted to write, professionals with amateurs, people's work being critiqued until they were uncomfortable sharing. Earlier this year, I released my second book, a book of poems titled, Writing For My Sanity, which gave me the inspiration to create this workshop. I was always told, if you can't find what you seek, create it, so I did. The Writing for My Sanity workshop is my way to give back to the community that raised me and the craft that saved me, writing.
