Interrupted: When plans go sideways

Interruptions come in many forms. Some interruptions are small, like when someone speaks over you in conversation or something distracts you from a task. Some interruptions are medium-sized, like a flat tire on your way to work or an electric outage at home. Some interruptions are big, like a life-altering diagnosis at a routine doctor visit, or the death of a loved one. Some interruptions are global, like a pandemic that changes the fabric of your life and the lives of everyone around you. In this workshop, we will read, discuss, and write about how we experience interruptions as individuals, and as a community.

Lost and Found

This pandemic has produced so many losses—some devastating, others disruptive or disappointing.  This workshop will provide a space to name our losses, both large and small, and also to name and articulate what we may be finding. In the spirit of narrative medicine, we will use reading, writing, and listening to acknowledge, absorb, interpret, and act on our own and others’ stories of what we have lost and found.

Thank you for visiting NWNMC! See you online, soon!
