Love’s Labor: A Workshop For Mothers Writing About Loss



hosts Love’s Labor Saturday May 9th from 10 AM to 2 PM:


Love’s Labor is a writing workshop for mothers who have known loss. Whether you’ve lost a pregnancy, a child, or someone or even something else, this day is for putting words to the unspoken. Taking inspiration from prose writers who’ve written movingly about loss, we will access our own memories and make them accessible to others. Love’s Labor is open to any mother who feels the urge to write.
