The hardest times in life can make you “voiceless,” but also offer the greatest opportunity for stories. At these times the invitation to “tell me your story” can be a critical encouragement in the healing process.

As caregivers, teachers, counselors, parents, nurses, doctors, and patients, we will look at our own stories and those of others to practice strength and healing. Through writing, we will explore the uses of journals, fiction, essays, and poetry in the telling and receiving of stories.

  • Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
