Two years into the pandemic, many of us are feeling stuck inside a murky narrative that evolves in fits and starts but fails to resolve. In this one-day process workshop, writers will be invited to reflect on life before and during the pandemic, to articulate how we have been impacted and changed, and to dream into the next stage of life. We will write from prompts, and we will have the opportunity to share and discuss our work as a group, toggling between our inner and collective experiences.
