Literary Therapy Writing Circles

Winter Cohorts: February - March 2024

Topic: Navigating Grief + Loss

Could you benefit from an intimate space to process your experiences, prioritize joy, and collaborate on creative wellness strategies?

You into action plans and ongoing support? Recipes as healing tools?

This four-week writing circle is the group for you.


“Sometimes, I wish I could call my mom: What to do when you want to talk to a deceased loved one.”

When grief runs up on you, do you bust out your journal or turn to your altar? Breeze past the moment and forget about it? Phone a friend?

We asked community members how they handle those moments when they wish they could hear from someone who has passed away.


What’s the most JOYFUL part of your school day?

We spoke to educators at the 2023 Summer Learning Conference at Buena Vista University about prioritizing mental health for their learners and themselves, creative wellness tools for coping amidst transition, and cultivating more joyful working and learning environments.


Check out the griefKit

Because none of us can avoid grief’s ashy-knuckled grasp.

There is no right way to navigate grief and loss. But it’s much easier to do with joy, community, and good snacks.

This crowdsourced griefKit has articles and essays, books, communities and toolkits, mindful movement, music and podcasts, recipes, activities for reflection and exploration, and lots of love.

Available in text form and as a joy-filled 55-page downloadable PDF.

Here’s what a few community members had to say about the GetSomeJoy Experience.


“Alex did a great job bringing us together and creating a safe space with no judgment while supporting us through the most difficult time we’ve gone through globally. We all went through this together. To have that support was invaluable.”

Ayanna Fortson, VP of Housing

National Urban League

“…this was probably the first time I’ve ever really felt heard.”


“I’ve been to a lot of groups. I lead sewing workshops for domestic violence survivors. Outside of my therapist, this was probably the first time I’ve ever really felt heard. It was the best group I’ve ever been to. And I learned that I don’t listen enough. I’m so glad I found this space.”

Nubia Ptah, Founder

Nubia Cultural House
