The Write face process helps attendees focus on clarifying and understanding their thoughts. Unwritten thoughts may be fleeting or chaotic; the written word can be reviewed and refined. As our writers rework their words to say exactly what they mean, they are able to observe and attend to their reactions to life’s challenges. Teaching artist, Scott Hower, a Vietnam veteran, experienced the stress of readjustment personally. He learned through his writing to manage those issues. Teaching artist Annie Ginder is a certified Journal To The Self instructor who has taught journaling and poetry courses to individuals suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, as well as elementary school children.
