Free Writing Workshop For Breast Cancer Survivors
The Writer Within is a free monthly workshop for women who have had breast cancer and/or their family members. The first workshops of the new year will be held on Monday, January 13 and Monday, February 10.
Workshops run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Adelphi University School of Social Work in Garden City. It is not necessary to come to both sessions, but pre-registration is required.
Research has shown the positive effects of expressing emotions and one way to do this is through writing. These writing workshops, taught by Lynda Aron, give breast cancer survivors the opportunity to tap into their feelings and creativity. Lynda Aron is a teacher and writer who lectures internationally on the process of writing. She developed the Writer Within workshops at both Adelphi and at Gilda’s Club in Manhattan. Ms. Aron helps to de-mystify the writing process in an environment that is nurturing, supportive and accepting.
There is no charge for the workshops, which are sponsored by the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program. Participants may come as often as they wish; however, pre-registration is required. Those who have questions or wish to register may call Sandi Kafenbaum, ACSW, at 516-877-4314.
