Creative Writing Workshops for Cancer Patients, Caregivers and More
Beginning in January, Melissa Greene, a published fiction writer, poet and professional writing mentor and the creator of Write From The Heart Creative Writing workshops, will lead a free two-workshop series for adult cancer patients and survivors, titled Cancer and Creative Writing: Who Knew?!, at the Lancaster General Health Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute
Taught in an atmosphere of warmth, compassion and trust, students learn how creative writing, from the heart, can make a difference in cancer recovery. Greene guides participants to find beauty, inspiration and hope in everyday surroundings. Sharing is optional, and humor is a must. All classes explore how playfulness trumps fear, opening the door to courage, passion and the confidence to create. Free from grades and competition, spelling, grammar, punctuation and rules; Greene’s gentle, uplifting workshops will awaken the creative spirit without intimidation or pressure.
In January, Greene will also host Women’s Introductory, Memoir, and Fiction workshops, as well as workshops for children and teens, in her Lancaster studio.
