Writing is Healing

Registration is full

Join the waitlist for potential future openings. 

This six-week interactive writing workshop is designed for transplant or CAR T-cell therapy recipients and caregivers. Over the course of six sessions, we'll use writing exercises and prompts to guide us through a healing approach to remembering, inscribing and sharing the aspects of our medical journeys we've found most meaningful.

This workshop is OPEN TO ALL LEVELS of writers – no previous experience required.

Our active workshop environment will include time to reflect, write and share as you feel comfortable.  Sharing is always optional and discussion is warmly encouraged.
