Robert Frost wrote “no tears for the writer, no tears for the reader.” But how does the writer bring emotionally difficult material to the page and move through trauma to create powerful work? We will examine leading examples of grief writing and use writing exercises to learn ways to confront tears, find joy, and meet on the page the continuation of Frost’s quote: “No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader.” You will gain strength for writing about trauma in pursuit of insight, a sense of wholeness, and connection to readers. Open to writers at all levels, in all genres.
