8-Week Session beginning May 11 (May 11, 18, 25, June 1, 8, 15, 29 & July 6) 3 to 5 PM CT

Open to the writer in each of us, and offered to people currently receiving treatment for cancer or who have completed treatment within the last two years, this group allows for creative exploration in a supportive space right where you are. Your creations are prompted by writing-prompts that inspires stories from your life. Each session is a self-care surprise.

Bring your notebook and pen or laptop, and invite your muse to join us. Participants will have the opportunity to read their writing to the group, which is healing on many levels. Registration is free and required. Sessions are limited to 10 participants. A Zoom link will be provided after registration.

For questions and to register, send us an email.

This free outreach program is held in partnership with the Bliss Cancer Resource Center and the Ames Writers Collective.
