On the day Angela Jackson-Brown’s mother died, she immediately started writing. Every time she felt like she might explode, she scribbled until the moment passed. Writing had always been her balm, the thing that soothed her when nothing else would; it was her only way through the grieving process. This workshop will teach you how to channel your grief into a poem or story that frees your heart and mind from some part of the pain of loss. During our first meeting, we will discuss the importance of acknowledging our grief, owning it, and then releasing it. The goal for this workshop is for you to identify one thing you have been carrying and then begin the process of releasing it through the written word. During our second meeting, we will workshop our writing and support each other as we begin the process of letting our grief go. NOTE: This workshop is designed for people to explore memories and events that might be painful for them to write and painful for you to read and discuss. Just be aware and know if anything gets to be too much, you are free to excuse yourself for a brief period of time and then return when you are ready.
