Writing in Recovery: Finding Creativity in Sobriety

Discover the healing power of journaling as you navigate your recovery. In this supportive and nurturing two-hour workshop, you'll learn to express your story through words, using writing to process challenges, boost self-esteem, and gain deeper self-awareness.

We’ll introduce you to daily writing practices and help you establish a journaling habit that can become a meaningful routine in your sobriety journey. Explore effective genres such as memoir, narrative non-fiction, and poetry, with personal writing prompts designed to help you put your life on the page.

Join us to heal, grow, and inspire others with your unique message of hope and strength. Let’s write our way to a brighter future together.
