Writing through Trauma
Dates: 8 Mondays from January 19-March 9, 2015
Time: 6:00-8:00 PM
Location: Unity of Bloomington
Instructor: Shawna Ayoub Ainslie
This class will be a supportive space for adult writers negotiating difficult topics, regardless of genre or experience. We will discuss writing trauma from a safe space, self-care, critical reading, how to give and receive constructive criticism, what writing style works best for us and why, finding our voices, and point of view among other topics. At least 30 minutes of every session will be devoted to in-class writing. Writers are encouraged to share their work, but not required. Regular out-of-class writing and reading will be assigned for in-class discussion. This course includes an optional peer workshop. Maximum 10 participants.
