Event: Starting and Sustaining a Personal Writing Practice

September 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a talk this month with Katie Baptist, LCSW, discussing starting and sustaining a personal writing practice.

Throughout Katie’s 18+ years as a mother, her writing notebook has been an indispensable friend and solace to her. It’s been the place she went to play when she was feeling creative and energized, and it’s also been the safe haven waiting to hold her thoughts at times when she felt discouraged and alone.

Writing about the things she felt strongly but didn’t quite yet understand was and is the best way she ever discovered for learning what she valued and believed in.

In her work as a therapist and authenticity recovery mentor, again and again she has met women who say they’d like to have a regular writing practice, but they don’t have time or they don’t know how.

Because Katie has found writing to be the absolutely-most-important key to her own self-care, she has spent a lot of time thinking about and researching about what works to enliven a writing practice and make it fit into the contours of our busy lives.

Plan to bring your journals or notebooks and a pen you love to write with. We’ll talk about the “Whys” and the “Hows” of a daily personal writing practice. Plan on working through some writing prompts together, with an option to share what you wrote with the group- or not! You’ll receive handouts about what we’ve talked about, as well as some more ideas to take your writing practice further.
