About this event

The Write Treatment: Creative writing circle for hope and healing

Telling stories and sharing with others can deepen our relationships or start new ones, increasing our sense of empathy for and connection with one another. Join in this monthly creative writing gathering for breast cancer survivorship at Forge. You don’t have to be a writer to attend. Bring a friend or a loved one with you. Let’s write out our hopes and healing.

This group will meet in a HYBRID format for our August meeting. You can register to attend online via Zoom OR in-person at Forge. Please email [email protected] or call 205-838-6159 with questions.

About Salaam Green: Salaam is the founder of The Literary Healing Arts, an organization founded to promote the healing power of words. She organizes workshops where she teaches people how to “Write to Heal.” Salaam believes in the power of storytelling to promote healing and that writing can be a tool used to support therapy and medical interventions.
