Please help us to spread the word – the Writing Ourselves Whole is finally getting its launch party!
If you’re in the SF Bay Area, I’d love to have you join us for a night to celebrate the power of writing as a practice of resistance and healing for sexual trauma survivors.
What: Book launch celebration for Writing Ourselves Whole: Using the Power of Your Own Creativity to Recover and Heal from Sexual Trauma
Where: Avenue, 3361 Mission St., San Francisco
When: Tuesday, December 5, 6:30-9:00pm
Portion of proceeds from book sales will go to San Francisco Women Against Rape
At a time of daily challenging conversation about sexual violence in our society, join Jen and the Writing Ourselves Whole community to celebrate the release of her book, Writing Ourselves Whole: Using the Power of Your Own Creativity to Recover and Heal from Sexual Trauma (Mango, 2017). The evening will include a reading, Q&A with a special guest, and book signing — plus books for sale on site. We will have light refreshments (including some homemade baked goods!) and drinks.
In her book, Jen brings a message of hope and possibility about the power of creativity and writing in community as a path to transformative healing and personal liberation. Writing Ourselves Whole is full of support and advice for anyone who wants to tap into their creativity as a means to grow and heal.
Writing Ourselves Whole is a book about power and possibility, hope and transformation, and expertly weaves anecdotes from Jen’s own journey of self-exploration and recovery through writing with rich guidance and encouragement garnered from her fifteen-year career leading writing groups in the SF Bay area and around the country. She has experienced and witnessed first-hand the power of writing – alone and in creative community – to manifest transformative change in the lives of those who embrace its possibilities.
