This unique writing workshop will expose you to various non-fiction and poetry texts providing a variety of approaches to writing creatively about grief and loss. You will learn writing techniques, methods, approaches and literary devices for the crafting of evocative creative non-fiction and poetry. You will learn techniques and devices for writing evocatively about grief and loss and expressing your experiences in ways that will resonate with others.
