WRITING FOR WELLNESS, RESILIENCE, AND EMPOWERMENT with Alissa Torres
Saturday, June 3, 2017
2:00-5:00 pm

What are the stories in our lives that have shaped us into who we are today?  How can writing help us to articulate our real and fantastical goals and dreams?  We will do a variety of writing exercises to find and explore our own sets of past, present and future stories and then draft a few of them.  From there we will learn how to to further develop our stories to to "write wrongs," and to craft our best selves.
