Writing the Tough Stuff

A FREE one-hour webinar with Jessica Handler
Feb 19th at 2 pm & Feb 21st at 7 pm (EST)

We may find that we want to write about loss, grief, or trauma with the notion that getting it down on paper will be cathartic. This webinar will present strategies for strong nonfiction writing, and introduce cross-disciplinary research in crafting personal narrative involving difficult topics. Participants will engage in generative writing exercises.

This one-hour online session will be offered twice; space is limited.
