RC After Dark (RAD) is back with another event to help you on your journey to wellness, a writing workshop, Monday March 30th. This event is open to those who enjoy writing and need a welcoming environment to share their work with others. The aim of this workshop is to showcase how writing can benefit those struggling with mental health issues and be an integral part of the healing process. Any form of writing welcome. The workshop will be held the last Monday of each month.
The doors open at 6:00 pm and the workshop will start at 6:30 pm. We start with a prompt, write for 15 minutes, and then workshop the written piece or any other pieces you'd like to share. It is free to attend. Snacks and drinks will be provided. This event is in partner with The Recovery Center of Hamilton County, a mental health and wellness organization. Parking is available in lot.
*Please be aware that topics of discussion may be intense.
