Raising Our Voices: Writing Through Sexual Abuse

This FREE workshop, “Raising Our Voices: Writing Through Sexual
Abuse”(ROV) will show you how writing (even if no one else reads it) is a very accessible way to foster healing. “Raising Our Voices” is a one day, three-hour workshop for adults who are survivors of sexual assault. Learn how to use the art of journaling, poetry, and other writing techniques to not only promote healing but growth. Tell your story using your own voice.

group. Journals will be provided and pens and pencils in a
rainbow of colors will be available for during the workshop.
