Instructor(s): Stevie Edwards
Beginner Beginner Beginner

In Writing and Wellness we will read and write poems that explore wellness in both the mind and the body. The course will provide a safe space to write about obstacles to wellness, however big or small, and will encourage students to write toward radical acceptance and relentless dignity. There will be weekly writing prompts, reading assignments of approximately 10-15 pages, and opportunities for peer review. This course is especially recommended for those who are dealing or have dealt with illness (whether mental or physical) and their loved ones.
