Raven Chronicles writing workshop for Alzheimer's caregivers & their friends

Alzheimer's cafe encourages writing by caregivers + a Raven Chronicles Writing & Alzheimer’s workshop at Jack Straw Productions


RAVEN CHRONICLES presents “Writing the Alzheimer’s Experience: A Workshop for Caregivers and Friends of People with Alzheimer’s Disease” taught by Esther Altshul Helfgott

Write to develop a greater understanding of what caregivers experience. Whether your loved one is at home or in a facility – three thousand miles away or next door – writing will help you counter isolation and erase the stigma associated with Alzheimer’s Disease. Prior writing experience isn’t necessary, and we’ll write in any form – memoir, poem, essay, fragments, lists, whatever you discover. We’ll use writing triggers from Beyond Forgetting: Poetry and Prose about Alzheimer’s Disease, edited by Holly J. Hughes (Kent State University Press, 2009).

Raven Chronicles’ Office, Jack Straw Foundation/Warren Building 909 N.E. 43rd St., Suite No. 205

Sunday, May 6, 2012; 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. $35.00
