Young Adult Writing Group- for Young Adults Healing from Cancer

Organization: OHSU Knight Cancer Institute

The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute offers you an opportunity to explore your cancer journey through writing. This ten week workshop, led by an Amherst Writers & Artist trained facilitator, offers a safe and empowering environment that encourages health and healing. This is not a support group or a workshop where you will learn to write. This is a place where you can process your cancer experiences through creative writing prompts, exploring the meaning of your story as you put words to your unspoken thoughts. The workshop is open to any adolescent or young adult (age 15-39) with cancer in the community. No prior writing experience is necessary to join.

This is a drop in group so no registration is necessary.

Your Stories

Organization: The Conversation Project

Everyone has a story. About losing someone close. About what it was like to have the conversation. About not talking about wishes until it was too late. Explore these stories that others have shared, and if youd like, tell us your own story. Hearing about other peoples experiences can be a good way to get your own conversation started.
