A workshop series for people who either have lived experience with mental illness themselves, or through a loved one or friend. Whether you write prose, poetry, comics, or don’t know yet what form you like, come and explore. There will be time to develop a longer piece over several workshops or to create something new each time. Anything can happen and everything is possible.

LENORE ROWNTREE is a novelist, poet and playwright who sometimes writes for her mental health. She is the co-editor and a contributor to the anthology Hidden Lives: true stories from people who live with mental illness. The play SRO Stars, which she conceived and co-wrote with others from a mental health worldview, was part of the Vancouver Heart of the City Festival in 2018, and will be included in the Off the Page series at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse this fall.

These workshops are part of the library’s Enriching Words Writing Series, sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Credit Union.
