Writing Workshop Series with Sarah Domareki

March 24, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Zoom–Consider the power of our written words and how they make sense of and bring meaning to our life experiences. This workshop will enable people living with chronic disease and their caregivers to process some of their experiences and related feelings through writing. This series will take place each Wednesday, March 10, 17, 24, & 31 from 2:30 – 4:00 pm on Zoom.
This workshop, led by Sara Domareki, will draw on ideas from Arthur W. Frank’s, The Wounded Storyteller; Julia Cameron’s, The Writer’s Way; and other sources as a starting point for our thinking and writing. Classes will include material from the facilitator, group discussion, writing, and sharing of that writing, as much as the participants feel comfortable, in a confidential, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.
After we share facets of our experiences, we may ask questions like:
• What have I learned from this experience?
• Is there some kind of growth I can do here?
• How might I turn my experiences into good–for myself and others?
We welcome participant’s questions, thoughts, and insights to help guide the workshop. This workshop is for those, with any amount of previous writing experience,
who wish to process the ways in which their lives have been touched by illness, their challenges, and pain, as well as the moments of gratitude and grace.
We will examine our lives with sensitivity, compassion, fellowship, and humor, in an attempt to gain insight, perspective and whatever kind of healing may be available to us as we bring our hearts and minds to the work.
Workshop facilitator, Sarah Domareki, a trained writing teacher with an MA in English and Creative Writing who herself had that unexpected diagnosis one day and wishes to use the gift of survival to help others process their own experiences. Sarah earned a BA in English at Smith College; an MA degree in French and in English; and Creative Writing at the University of Maine. She has extensive experience as a teacher of Writing, French, History, and Visual Art. She lives in Ellsworth with her two teens and two cats.
