Writing for Healing—For Mothers of the Homeless, Addicted, & Estranged – Spring 2023

As Mothers of these adult children, our numbers are growing. Our stories are unique, painful, and never-ending. This is not a support group or therapy. This course is not about our children, how they got to where they are, or why. It is about us, the Mothers. Emphasis will be placed on our stories—how we have handled the situation and taken care of ourselves. We will not complete a memoir in this short course. We will complete a few pieces and develop a strategy moving forward to continue to process—and hopefully heal.

Laverne Zabielski is a writer, artist, and publisher. She received her M.F.A. in writing at Spalding University in Louisville. 

This class is suitable for all levels.

Cancellation Policy:

The Carnegie Center reserves the right to cancel a class if minimum enrollment is not met. It is best to register early to help our instructors prepare and to ensure the class does not get cancelled. We evaluate registration numbers between 6 and 2 business days before a class starts to decide whether we can hold the class. Classes that do not meet minimum enrollment may be cancelled a minimum of two business days prior to the first class meeting. All participants will be notified by email and will receive full refunds.
