Writing with HeART

Before we could write, we could draw. By adding visuals to our narratives—drawings, photographs, found objects, clippings, collages—we can capture experiences that come before or go beyond words. Weaving together text and art or exploring each as a way further into the other can deepen your artistic expression.

Whether you’re interested in journaling, memoir writing, visual art, or simply a creative avenue to self-discovery, Suzy Becker offers a safe, playful environment to help make your life stories visible. Through lecture, demonstration, individual coaching, and a series of tried-and-true generative writing and visual prompts, you learn how to

  • Take your narrative expression to the next level
  • Set yourself up for success, with best practices and strategies for beating writer’s block
  • Connect with yourself and others
  • Displace fear with fun
  • Increase your awareness of illustrated narrative.

“The best thing about the workshop was the level of comfort [Suzy] created to make everyone willing to share. [Her] use of humor made our time really fun.” —Harrison W., past program participant

“Suzy has a welcoming, encouraging presence. I felt seen and heard. I saw and felt the epiphany of letting go and writing.” —Cheryl R., past program participant
