In this writing workshop for women, we explore the aftermath of relationship breakups and divorce. Award-winning memoirist Spike Gillespie has written often about the pain and grief that ensues when partnerships fall apart. Immediately after a split, you might feel like locking yourself away and crying forever. You might over-ruminate on what went wrong. You might feel anger, sadness, deep loss, and even a yearning for the one who went away. Spike creates a safe place for you to explore all of your feelings, get them down on the page and, if you wish, share them out loud.Over the course of six weekly meetings we will:

Use writing prompts to investigate and acknowledge the broad spectrum of breakup emotions

Honor what was

Grieve what is no more

Imagine a plan for a future in which the pain lessens, the grief quiets, and peace and hope prevail.

No prior writing experience is required. Seasoned writers and newbies alike are welcome. In-class time will be primarily used for group discussion and sharing our writing. While there will be some short writing exercises during meetings, longer pieces will be written at home.
