“This was my first writing workshop. [I found] the work that all the participants shared had such depth, an honesty, a power to open your heart and mind, to touch and inspire. I experienced it as nourishing, as soul food. I had the feeling of a presence in the room, a capacity to hold all our human pain, grief, helplessness—even trauma—in such a kind, gentle way. This is something I always want to understand: what can hold this suffering! At this workshop, I got a deeper sense of it.”
