Writing Your Cancer Journey: An Expressive Writing Workshop

Led by:
Ali Zidel Meyers, MSW

Writing allows us to unearth, express, and make meaning out of our cancer journeys. Through the process of writing about our experiences, we can find healing as we explore the impacts of cancer on our lives. Join us in this safe, supportive community to generate and share writing through cancer. Here is what one writer says about her experience in the group:

"The reason I came to this program was to find a way to express myself, tap into the emotional turmoil I was undergoing. This group is a way for people diagnosed and coping with cancer to get in touch with their an environment of others who can relate to what they are experiencing."
- Elizabeth

Beginning and experienced writers are welcome. All you need is pen and paper, or if you prefer, a laptop. Between monthly sessions, the facilitator will provide optional writing prompts and supportive feedback to those who wish to participate in this way.

This workshop meets the first Wednesday of every month with email prompts weekly on "off-session" weeks.

No registration is necessary; just drop in.

The Stanford Cancer Supportive Care Program provides FREE classes, workshops, fitness classes, services, and support to all cancer patients, regardless of where they receive their care.
