This will be an opportunity to write in a form of your choosing—poetry, short story, journaling. I will provide a couple of prompts to stimulate the creative juices and off you’ll go with it. It’s an opportunity for self-reflection and inspiration. A time to rejuvenate and share in a comfortable home setting. We will read our writings aloud to the group afterwards, if we so want, and hear the group’s response (positive comments only). Come write! No judgment, just exploration!

Non-NCGPS members are welcome to attend.

From the Facilitator:

Edna Wallace has been leading therapy groups for over a decade and recreational groups for much longer than that. She loves to write (self-taught); and it’s certainly a form of self-care for her. She has her “hipster laptop” and takes herself off to the neighborhood cafe whenever she can to indulge in this pastime. Edna, together with a therapist colleague, have led a monthly Women’s Writing Salon for over 3 years now. Jim Fishman’s recent OS on Mandala-Painting has inspired her to offer an OS in the same vein—expressing oneself through the beauty of language, word imagery, and storytelling.

Fee: $20 per person, per event. (Space is limited; sign up early!)

This Workshop is currently filled! To be place on a waiting list, contact Edna Wallace:
