Workshop leader: Emma Gilkison

This workshop will provide inspiration, suggestions and encouragement for anyone interested in writing about a grief-causing experience.

"All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story or tell a story about them." Karen Blixen

What did Danish writer Karen Blixen mean when she said this and how can we put the idea into practice? This one-hour workshop will explore the way our personal narratives can help us find coherence and meaning in difficult times.

Practical questions will be worked through including: how to start a writing project; choosing a form; overcoming blocks; setting up supports for when the writing process gets tough; and when is the best time to write about grief.
