Workshop to explore creative writing
The Mayo Clinic Humanities in Medicine and Cancer Centers are sponsoring a creative writing workshop called Treasuring Memories Through Writing.
Participants will read published and unpublished passages. A short writing session will be included.
A clinic spokesperson said creative writing or journaling can lead to a "deeper self-understanding, help transcend the pain of a particular event and help gain perspective on problems."
The workshop will be from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Mayo Cancer Education Center in the Gonda Building lobby, 100 Third Ave. S.W.
