Susan Musgrave Grief Writing Workshop May 2024

In this interactive workshop, use readings and exercises to delve into your own grief journey through whatever medium you choose. We will write, and share our work, when we are ready, with other participants in a brave, non-judgmental space. No writing experience required. Every time I sit down to write, I am a beginner.

Margaret Atwood has said all writing is an attempt to bring back the dead. To journey into the past and bring back what is vanished. If we can’t bring our beloved ones back physically, we can do it in our own words, one truthful word at a time.
