While I'm always honored to read from my fiction and nonfiction, my writing became most meaningful and most purposeful when I used the practice of structured narrative to write myself out of illness and into wellness. We tend to view healing from illness and trauma as a private concern. My own writing, initially private, eventually became public in purpose, beginning at my blog, and eventually finding a wider audience on sites like The Huffington Post, The Fix, and The Rumpus. I have worked with beginning writers in recovery settings to help them access the transformative power of putting their journeys into structured narratives. I am able to tailor a Recovery Writing Workshop to your group’s needs and am available for on-line or in-person recovery writing coaching.
