About the Workshop 

Workshop Dates: Sep. 14, Sep. 21, Sep. 28, Oct. 12, Oct. 19, Oct. 26; 3 p.m.–5 p.m.

Even at its most rewarding, caregiving can be a lonely job. Join others who spend their days and nights looking after young children, aging parents, and anyone in between as we learn from one another and build community through writing and workshopping true stories. This six-week, virtual course is open to writers of all experience levels, from beginners to veterans. Participants will read their stories in a public reading at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) on October 30, from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
