NICU Families NW
Partnering with Write Around Portland, we held a six-week creative writing workshop to help NICU parents process their experiences and develop their creative voices.

A central belief of NICU Families Northwest is that every story matters. Owning your NICU experience can be empowering and healing, and dedicating time to cultivate your voice in writing is a form of self-care. Join NICU Families Northwest for a weekly, hands-on workshop devoted to generative writing and the transformative power of writing in community.
