I'm thrilled to be participating in the 17th Annual Statewide Caregiver's Conference happening on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, in Concord, NH. I'll be teaching my "Writing through Caregiving" workshop for conference participants. To learn more and register, click here.
I love teaching community writing workshops, and when I get to hold space for caregivers, it's especially meaningful for me. This fall, I am partnering with the Dempsey Center to offer a writing and journaling workshop for cancer caregivers, something I wish I had been able to access when I was caring for Steve. The workshop is being held virtually on December 7, 2023. You do need to be a Dempsey Center participant to sign up for this workshop, but you can learn more about the workshop and find out more about the Dempsey Center offerings and becoming a Dempsey Center client here.
I will be volunteering at Camp Ray of Hope this year, and I'll be offering a "Writing through Grief" workshop as part of the programming. Writing and journaling can be incredibly helpful tools when we are living through the loss of a loved one, and this workshop is designed to help participants explore different writing techniques.
Camp Ray of Hope is a weekend retreat for individuals and families from Maine who are grieving the death of a loved one. Childcare and scholarships are available.
