Join us for Unspoken Ink Express, a one-night version of our longer, online, Unspoken Ink: Creative Writing Workshop. This workshop is designed to take you on a journey through your cancer diagnosis and into your survivorship with a small group of your young adult cancer patient/survivor peers. We will address issues that transport us from initial diagnosis into the new normal and survivorship through creative writing.
