Loving someone with a mental illness is challenging, and can include a range of contradictory feelings. How can we use that complicated experience to create compelling poems and/or prose? Together, we’ll examine short examples from a variety of genres that express this unique experience and create powerful work. If you’ve been waiting for “permission” to write about this topic—or want to explore it deeper—please join us. NOTE: This is a safe space, but should not substitute for therapy—we will focus on craft issues and how writers turn personal experience into literature to share with others.
