Feedback form is now closed.
Learn creative ways to engage students struggling with anxiety and other mental health challenges, particularly during the pandemic, utilizing the empowering and healing capacities of writing. Creative writing exercises will be presented in both fiction and non-fiction as tools for personal reflection and betterment. Participants will leave having tried these writing exercises themselves and be equipped to apply them in the compassionate support of students in their schools and communities.

Stress and mental health are critical topics in our busy world wracked with pandemic fear and other challenges. Educators who know how to find peace and resiliency in themselves will be better equipped to support students to achieving the same. Creativity and writing are amazing tools to unlock negative emotions, confront unhealthy patterns of behavior and thinking, and become wholehearted and joyful people.

Participants should come prepared to write with paper, a pen or pencil, or a computer.
