Finding Your Voice
Using Your Journal as a Healing Place
Saturday, October 10, 2020
12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Please RSVP by emailing us at
We will send you the ZOOM link
We’ll explore writing as a place to get to know ourselves more fully, to claim the parts of ourselves often left behind or left out. In this workshop, we’ll lovingly make our journals safe places (be prepared with some form of notebook, spiral, composition book, sheets of paper, or online space dedicated to your writing) where we can explore parts of ourselves we don’t always make room for. No experience is required. And we aren’t interested in correctness or any of the things that typically keep us from writing. We’ll explore ways into writing like free writes, felt sense, and morning pages, invitations to play, release us from judgement, and open into a deeper appreciation of ourselves.
Facilitated by: Ceil Malek
Ceil Malek has kept journals for a long time, where she has probably written her way around the world several times in a process of self-discovery and self-recovery that helped her face the challenge of CSA. It’s that experience that primarily qualifies her to teach this workshop. She also has other credentials like writing-intensive degrees (in English, journalism, and creative nonfiction) and having taught writing at UCCS for many years. She has led community writing workshops through Poetry West and other organizations for many years, including those for survivors of trauma.
