New Writing Course for Consumers!


Get It Write

April 23/09 from 10am - 12pm and April 24/09 from 10am - 4pm

Developed and led by Susan Katz (creator of the Consumer Initiative Fund's 'Write from the Heart' and 'Recovery Narrative Project'), this 1.5 day writing workshop is for mental health consumers wishing to lift their writing to new levels and learn how to carry on their own writing practice at home. We focus on producing writing; learning creative and fun methods of accessing our words with simple writing exercises and body movements; and developing skills to effectively give, receive, and incorporate feedback from your audience.

This program is a real confidence-builder, and ideal for consumers wishing to go on to conventional writing programs or to create their own writing practice. No previous experience necessary, but do bring a journal of your choice to write in, a bag lunch and wear loose, comfortable clothing. Light refreshments provided.

Cost: $100
