No cottage? No vacation? Want something different to do this summer? Linda Dawn Pettigrew and I will be offering three writing events at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre (427 Bloor St. W., west of Spadina, Toronto.)
The first, July 14, will introduce short, enjoyable writing activities on the topic of Identity. The second will explore Gratitude, on 28 July, and the third, Hope, will end the series on 11 August. Join us for one or all three evenings from 7-9 p.m.
This free-writing program engages all of you – mind, body, emotions and spirit – and gets your authentic writer going while you have fun in a group. Writing is healing. It helps you discover who you are, what you think and feel. Writing builds self-esteem, confidence and develops voice. It is empowering. Writing with others also builds community.
Everyone is welcome, including writers with minimal literacy skills. No experience or materials are required, and there will be no pressure! Space limits us to 30 participants. Please register with Linda Dawn or Kenn at linda.pettigrew3ATsympatico.ca or kenngcATsympatico.ca. Please put “Writing Blitz” in the subject line.
Fall Writing Group
In the fall we will be co-facilitating a writing group, on most Tuesday evenings, rooted in the genre of memoir writing and based on the theme of writing as healing on various topics e.g. Simple Pleasures, Compassion, Faith, Loss, Grief and Condolence. You can sign up for this now too.
