At Writing Ourselves Whole, we celebrate writing as transformative practice.
We believe in the power of story, the joy of writing, and the depth of human creative resilience. We believe in the power of community to hold, witness and celebrate the stories that we have been told are unspeakable. And we believe– particularly for survivors of trauma– in the liberatory uses of writing our desire.
“I love the voices of every writer. Truly, I have been deeply fed by drinking in what others write. (I have thoroughly enjoyed writing too.) I love this format and the safety created by your presence, heart, group structure, and everyone participating.”
