Lost Lit & NYC Motherless Daughters
presents: A special writing workshop
We all process the grief and loss of our mothers in different ways. Whether the loss is recent, whether it happened years ago, grief can be ever present, pulsing just behind our retinas or be triggered at the most unexpected and unwelcome times. In this workshop, we will use the tool of writing, the art of storytelling and the excavation of memories to work through our grief. To give voice to our feelings, to process our feelings and to make sense of it all.
What to Expect?
Lynne Connor, a writer, owner of Lost Lit and motherless daughter, will lead the workshop by offering writing prompts specifically targeted for Motherless Daughters. We will write together for a timed amount of time. Then come back together as a group to share our newly produced writing. All the feedback will incorporate the Amherst Writers & Artists method, which treats all writing shared as fiction and only allows positive, supportive responses. Lynne will ask the group: what stays with them? What did they love? What do they remember. The combination of writing, reading their work aloud and receiving positive feedback is guaranteed to be a healing, magical experience. We hope you’ll join us.
