The Write Prescription: The Healing Power of Storytelling

with Judith Hannan

It can happen in a single moment or over time, but our lives shift. What we cannot control—illness, trauma, loss, mystery—disrupts the narrave we have been writing for ourselves. We become strangers to ourselves and isolated from others. In this workshop on writing about the earthquake or the slow tremble, prompts will allow us to rummage in our stories, to open them up to full view, to witness our strengths and opportunities for transformation. Reading our words back to ourselves and to others adds deeper meaning and brings us from isolation to community. No previous writing experience is required.
