(Participant of “You Are Here” 8-week ZOOM Guided Writing Workshop for Enliven Cancer Care)
The idea of “writing for wellness” really made a lot of sense to me before I actually signed up for Monique’s weekly workshop. The structured workshop, with Monique’s writing prompts and expert facilitation, really helped me to explore my own thoughts and emotions, and process them in a positive way. Her calm, caring, sincere nature comes through as she consistently created an emotionally safe environment for us to share our thoughts and writing. The atmosphere is encouraging and non-judgemental. Monique is very well-read, and I appreciated the balance between time spent writing and that spent listening to her read passages from her favourite authors or her own soulful writing.
It is a very worthwhile course.
