Mental health and wellness concerns can be particularly acute in the writing community, as writers navigate creative and professional highs and lows. This roundtable discussion focuses on how writers can build strong self-care practices, boundaries, and support systems. It will also touch on the risks involved in writing about mental illness, including what it means to go public with our stories and the challenges of writing about traumatic personal histories.
The discussion will be led by special guests from InkWell Workshops. InkWell runs free creative-writing workshops for people with mental health and addictions issues facilitated by award-winning writers with lived experience.
