Limited Seats Available for ‘Writing About What Hurts’ Workshop Starting Tomorrow

LONGMEADOW — Taking their cue from Ernest Hemingway, who said, “write hard and clear about what hurts,” writers from all genres and experience levels will gather together at Bay Path University for a four-part series focused on writing about difficult life circumstances such as illness, death, trauma, or family dysfunction in order to understand them in a more profound way.

Attendees will work through the process of re-entering memories, taking them apart, putting them back together again on their own terms, and transforming them into something meaningful, perhaps even beautiful, for both writer and reader. Under the guidance of author and teacher Melanie Brooks, this workshop will provide a compassionate and supportive space for participants to engage in reading and writing exercises that begin peeling back the layers of their experiences and help them uncover the powerful stories they have to tell.

This workshop is comprised of four sessions, to be held on Wednesdays, March 20, March 27, April 3, and April 10 at Bay Path University, 588 Longmeadow St., Longmeadow. This series is open to writers of all genres and experience levels. For more information or to reserve a seat, visit www.baypath.edu/writingworkshop.
