This blog is a compilation of the amazing work of members of the Parkinson’s community who began or re-ignited their creative writing work as part of our Creative Connections Virtual Expressive Arts Program.
This program has grown and expanded through a partnership with Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Sarasota. Most recently Creative Connections welcomed the passion and talents of Student Volunteer, Edward Shen to lead a Creative Writing Workshop Series. Those that joined Edward each week learned about Haikus, Sonnets, and most importantly how to use their VOICE, something that can often be a challenge for those on their PD journey.
