Death:OK (Let’s Talk About It) is a day of inspiration, information, and connection taking place October 17, 2015 on the campus of Reed College in Portland, Oregon. As part of an ongoing series profiling our presenters, we’re pleased to introduce you to…
Shelly Sweeney, presenting “Writing through the Conversation and Conflict of Death, Dying & Living.”
Writing is a useful way to get on paper what is in our head. Everyone has a story to tell! Participants will join together and be presented thought starters. Together we will write for two short segments and by choice (or not ) share our words with the rest of the group. This process aids clarity and provides a launch point for later exploration.
Shelly Sweeney is a life-long writer who has facilitated writing workshops through Write Around Portland, a Portland non-profit. She is a compassionate person who wishes to provide a container for participants to write together to explore the complex conversation and conflict that death, dying, and living present.
