Healing with Poetry and Journaling with Leslis McGraw
October 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Join poet and presenter Leslie McGraw on Saturday, October 15, 2022 for a 1.5 hour workshop and learn about various journaling techniques, how to mine journals for patterns, poems, and stories, how to review poems for connection (as opposed to scholarly review), and engage in a couple of guided reflections.
