Gilda’s Club will host a creative writing workshop

Gilda’s Club will be hosting a free educational workshop “Creative Writing = Emotional Health” for anyone affected by cancer on Thursday, June 30, from 6-8 p.m. at Gilda’s Club Quad Cities Moline Clubhouse at 600 John Deere Road, Suite 101, Moline and via Zoom.

This creative/expressive writing workshop will help you bring out your inner writer, whether you’ve written books, articles, poems or kept a diary or if you’ve just thought of writing one day, this workshop will lay the groundwork to begin or continue your writing journey. You’ll learn things like: knowing your audience, determining which format is best for you, basic writing practices, the basics of structure, flow, show or tell and more.

The workshop will be led by David Richman, author, speaker and endurance athlete whose mission is to create more meaningful human connections through storytelling. His first book, “Winning in the Middle of the Pack,” explained how to get more out of ourselves than ever imagined. With “Cycle of Lives”, he shares stories of people overcoming trauma and dives deep into their emotional journey with cancer. He is also a ghostwriter for works of fiction and non-fiction, a book coach, and teaches creative writing workshops. He continues to do Iron Man triathlons and recently completed a 4,700 mile solo bike ride.

This program is offered hybrid. Participants can register to attend in person or virtually via Zoom. Richman will join virtually and will not be present in person. Registration is mandatory.
