Writing through Grief

Project Overview: 

“No one ever told me that grief felt so much like fear” - C.S. Lewis 


Writing Through Grief is a free 6-week community group starting on August 29th. We're hosting two group options. Group one will meet on Mondays from 6-8 PM at the Columbiana library for two hours each week. Group two will meet on Wednesdays from 6-8 PM at the Boardman library for two hours each week. For these groups, we’re looking for people who have experienced grief and would like to share, connect, and write with others who have a similar experience.

Whether you’re a new, beginning, or experienced writer, you’re welcome. We’re excited to hear your stories and share some of our own too!


If you’re interested, please fill out this form
