Follow Your Inner Narrative with Judith Hannan 

The Write Prescription: The Healing Power of Storytelling

It can happen in a single moment or over time, but our lives shift. What we cannot control—illness, trauma, loss, mystery—disrupts the narrative we have been writing for ourselves. We become strangers to ourselves and isolated from others. In this workshop on writing about physical and mental illness, prompts will be given to guide our exploration into our inner narrative, both including illness as well as the larger context of life.
