On October 22-23, there is a writing conference that blends writing, wellness and healing held at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. I have heard it is a good conference to attend if interested in writing and healing.
FEATURED KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
“Roy F. Fox is Professor of English Education and Director of the Missouri Writing Project at the University of Missouri. Roy will speak about restoring the self through language and will share his research into how words, when integrated with imagery, can extend and deepen the positive effects of expression. He will also report on his current research into how mental imagery affects the language and thinking of literacy experts who themselves employ writing as healing.”
“Brenda Stockdale has been the Director of Mind-Body Medicine for Georgia Cancer Treatment Center for over a decade where the latest research in mind-body medicine serves as an adjunct to medical treatment. She will speak about how writing heals: the biological underpinnings of writing for health which link writing and psychoneuroimmunology.”
