Expressive Writing Workshop Series
with Anne Hofland
5 Mondays, 1-2:30 pm
June 1 through June 29
Online via Zoom
$100 for the series
The desire to tell our stories has been part of the human experience since the beginning of time, in all cultures around the world. Writing can offer us a vehicle to better understand ourselves and each other, can empower us to find our voice, and can provide a transformative and healing experience. It is also an art form, and another medium to express ourselves creativity. Everyone is inherently a writer, and everyone can use words to create art.
- Come create and share your stories in a safe and supportive environment.
- Each workshop will consist of:
- writing prompts
- time to write,
- the opportunity to share your work
- the opportunity to listen and respond to others’ stories.
- Sharing is always optional, and feedback is always positive.
No previous creative writing experience is necessary.
Anne Hofland is a regular member of our open studio sessions, and discovered expressive writing as a tool on her own healing journey. She integrates extensive personal experience with the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method, her skills as an educator, and her training as a facilitator with the Toronto Writers Collective to provide an opportunity for participants to embark on an inner journey of exploration through writing. Anne has published travel articles, memoir pieces in three anthologies, and was a winner in the City of Toronto’s “My City, My Six” story competition. Anne has taught Expressive Writing in person at Expressive Arts Florida, and has adapted her program to an online format during this time of physical distancing.
