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
