Reading, PA — As a pathway towards healing, five Berks County women will share personal creative visualizations, poetry, journal entries and prose expressing trauma and pain, at 6:30 p.m., on March 13, in Albright College’s Alumni Hall.
After forming a group of emerging writers through funding from the Berks Arts Council, Albright English lecturer Marian Wolbers began a workshop focusing on the need to unearth and express traumatic and pain-related episodes of life through writing. Albright staff member Kelly Tanger, student Jillian Quale ’20 and alumna Amber Kulaga ’03 will be joined by community members Alicia Durrant and Corinne Laity in presenting their original poetry, journal entries and prose on personal traumatic events.
Following the reading, Wolbers will offer first steps, as well as early prompts and tools that serve to validate, support and open up the writing process in an emotionally-safe way. Participants will discuss the process of writing and writing groups.
