Expressive Healing Through Writing: Join Our FREE Online ‘Write to Heal’ Workshops for Cancer Patients and Survivors

Cancer can be an incredibly challenging journey, both physically and emotionally. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the “Write to Heal Workshops,” a FREE online writing program generously underwritten by Stephen and Jane Hochberg. These workshops are designed exclusively for cancer patients and survivors, providing a safe and supportive space to explore the healing power of expressive writing.

Discover the Healing Power of Words:

Expressive writing has shown through scientific studies that while it may not cure, it can certainly heal. This workshop is open to individuals of all skill levels; whether you’ve never written before or you’ve always been passionate about it, you are welcome to join us.

Our focus is not only on the life-changing impact of a cancer diagnosis but also on the broader aspects of healing through the written word. As we navigate the uncertainties of life, our words can serve as a pathway to reclaim our voices, share our stories, and reconnect with our lives.

Key Workshop Details:

  • Starting Date: November 2, 2023
  • Duration: Four weeks, meeting remotely every Thursday (November 2, 9, 16, 30, 2023, with a break for Thanksgiving week)
  • Time: 3 pm to 5 pm Mountain Time

Meet Your Workshop Facilitator:

The workshop is led by Joanne Fay Brown, MSW, an experienced facilitator who has conducted Amherst Writers & Artists workshops across various locations, including Santa Fe, Los Alamos, and Ghost Ranch in New Mexico, as well as in Oakland, Berkeley, and Oaxaca, Mexico. Joanne is a seasoned writing workshop leader, a cancer survivor, and a Master in Social Work, making her uniquely qualified to guide you on this healing journey.
