Write to be Healed Journaling for Self-awareness, Expression, and Reducing Stress (High School & Adult)

This program is designed by Janine De Tillio Cammarata after more than 30 years of personal journal writing.

It has been proven that self-inquiry through physically writing in a journal has the ability to heal. This workshop specifically focuses on using a journal to heal from injury, illness, loss or tragedy. It also is designed to empower, enlighten, and support anyone on their personal life path. 

Even if you aren't a writer, you can journal. Like anything else, it's a practice and the more you do it, the easier it becomes. Journaling allows us to search within our mind to get to the heart of where we want to be in our lives and what is stopping us. In this workshop, many techniques and exercises are used to build your journaling practice to healing and self-awareness.

It can be personalized for individual or group/retreat workshops.

Thank you for getting even my most reluctant writers excited and writing today! You’re the best! Top notch, high quality writing instructor!!
— Marcy Philo, 4th grade teacher, Karigon Elementary School
It was a wonderful day! The students thoroughly enjoyed it and were inspired. Next time you visit, I hope to schedule two days. One of the best quotes: ‘Can we continue this tomorrow?’
— Kathy Kutny, Librarian, Waterford-Halfmoon School District
Mrs. Cammarata’s writing workshop made me feel like when I was writing the story, I wanted to keep writing and not stop! She made me feel free to use my imagination. Mrs. Cammarata made me want to be a real author, like her.
— Students from Miss Robb's 5th grade class, Blue Creek Elementary
Thank you so much for visiting! My kids truly enjoyed your lesson. I’ve never had so much fun or participation during an author visit. We were all excited to continue working on our pieces!
— Shannon Race, 4th grade teacher, Karigon Elementary School
Janine was very easy going with the students and they responded with enthusiasm about the writing (and some who do not like to write). The students were excited to continue working on their stories after the author visit. She really got them to think about the writing process and be creative about it.
— Ariel Gilbert, 6th grade ELA Teacher, Berlin Middle School
Students were very engaged the entire writing process. Every student was excited to develop their own characters. They like being able to work with peers when being creative so that was helpful as well.
