Free Writing Workshop for Breast Cancer Survivors at BMH starts March 6

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital will offer a free, 10-week writing workshop for individuals living with cancer and an accompanying loved one, starting Tuesday, March 6 at 6:00 PM in the Richards Building.

“Spirit of the Written Word” provides cancer survivors the opportunity to promote their own healing and experience the therapeutic benefits of group writing. No writing experience is required and all sharing is voluntary. The program meets every Tuesday through May 8. Refreshments will be provided.

The workshop facilitator is Pam Roberts, program director for Forest Moon, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for cancer survivors and their families through interactive learning and therapeutic activities. Roberts is a writer, artist, yoga instructor and energy healer. She is a graduate of the IM School of Healing Arts in New York City and leads ongoing writing and yoga workshops for people touched by cancer in Vermont and Massachusetts.
