Grief & Writing

Grief & mourning have many faces. Everyone reacts differently to losing a loved one. Maybe you feel angry or sad, or you just want to cherish your memories. Writing may help you deal with the emotions of mourning. Sharing your experiences can help too.

Writing can be healing

By using small creative writing exercises we will express our stories of grief, give voice to our sadness or pen down our warm memories of loved ones. This can be healing on its own. You can then share your experiences and advice with others as well as learn from them. As everyone deals with grief differently, this can lead to new ideas.

You will work from home: having your own safe space to write, while we will share online our personal stories and give voice to feelings of grief.

Student testimonials

"I really appreciated the workshop. It was such a unique safe and open space to process my emotions. I felt much less lonely in my grieving process, connecting with people going through similar emotions. The writing helped to organize my thoughts and see my situations more clearly. It's also some thing that I can continue to do on my own to process the feelings further. "

“Thank you very much for the session and being open and vulnerable with us! It was really touching and helped me to clear my mind a lot.”

“The workshop give me a proper ‘space’ to address grief, I am really grateful I can share my story and also listen to others”

You can join in any time, and the sessions stand on their own: you can join once, or multiple times.
