About the Event

Writers for Recovery provides writing workshops, trainings, and talks to recovery groups, residential treatment facilities, and recovery organizations. We help people discover the power of the written word to process trauma, build self-esteem, and support healthy, sustained recovery. Participants in Writers for Recovery workshops write deeply personal stories of struggle and perseverance, doubt and inspiration, and the slow but steady work of renewal and healing. They share their stories with the public through literary readings, the Writers for Recovery blog, our annual print anthology, One Imagined Word at a Time, and our newest collaborative venture, the Writers for Recovery Podcast on VTDigger.org.

Bianca trained as a workshop leader with Writers for Recovery in 2023. This is a 5-week workshop series on Thursday afternoons beginning March 7. 

Free and open to those in recovery or impacted by addiction. 

What some people say about this model: 

  • “It has given me a way to express what I have experienced and share thoughts I can’t really say out loud at the moment.”
  • “It gives me permission to care about who I am, and who I am becoming.”
  • “Very cathartic—healing and social.”
  • “What a great way to express emotions and a great outlet for finding one’s inner voice.”
  • "If it wasn’t for this class, I don’t know if I would have reached out for help."
