Writer Jodie Toohey comes to us from the Midwest Writing Center and she will pick up on the grounding theme and show you how to use your senses as a framework for writing. She will introduce you to the “free-writing style” and guide you as you try several writing exercises. We’ll leave time for a robust discussion at the end of the seminar. Come prepared with a journal, paper, and something to write with. Invest in your well-being and join NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley and the Davenport Public Library as we come “Together for Mental Health.”
