Narrative Writing for Grief Group

This eight-session weekly writing group — which begins on Monday, September 23 — is for individuals who have lost a loved one to cancer. The group will focus on close reading and reflective writing as a means of exploration, discovery, and connection. Each week, participants will read a short prose piece or poem, write in response to a prompt based on the reading, and then share what they’ve written. No writing experience is necessary.

Space is limited and on a first-come basis. For more information and to register, please call 646-888-4889.


This program is for those who have lost a loved one to cancer. It is open to family members, friends, and staff. No observers, please, without prior approval.
