Limited to 9 writers. Fee is $425.
- This group is for writers who prefer a fun, generous and supportive atmosphere in which to write together and celebrate one another’s creative efforts. At the end of our nine weeks together, you will have a new creative community, and a strong body of new writing.
- No previous writing experience necessary! All workshops facilitated by Jen Cross and meet in private workshop space in Oakland, near 12st BART station. Email Jen with any questions, or visit our contact page to register.


Your facilitator Jen Cross founded Writing Ourselves Whole in 2003. She facilitates sexuality and sexual trauma survivors writing workshops in Oakland, CA, and across the country. Jen holds an MA in Transformative Language Arts, and is completing her MFA in Creative Writing at SF State. She is the author of Writing Ourselves Whole: Using the Power of Your Own Creativity to Recover and Heal from Sexual Trauma (Mango, 2017). Her fiction and creative nonfiction have been widely anthologized.

Writing Ourselves Whole believes in the power of transformative writing practice in community to restory individual trauma experience and restore those parts of ourselves we are trained to hide. We believe in the power of story, the joy of writing, and the depth of human creative resilience. Writing Ourselves Whole is a fiscally-sponsored project of Intersection for the Arts.
