Home » Welcome to the Writing Corner!
This is a new section of the Cafe and is meant to help those in the special needs community have an expressive outlet for their special needs writing or artwork. This will include my own original works, but my first request will be for submissions for YOUR original expressive works.
Stay tuned for details about Open Mic Night, where you can respond, in comments, with any expressive work, link, or comment and share in the experience without officially posting it to the Corner. Those who request can also have their comments pulled after each Open Mic Night. Sometimes we want to share without worrying about our emotions being out there for everyone else to see after the fact. I get that. I really do!
Also new and just for those who are part of the Writing Corner – a new TweetChat. Head over to the Kat’s Cafe Facebook Page to take the poll and weigh in on what night you would prefer these events taking place, and what time. While you’re there, leave a comment and say hello! I love making friends and connections!
By the end of the day, you will be able to sign up for a special newsletter here at the Writing Corner, one that will come as often as YOU want (there are actually three different options to choose from!) While the Cafe-To-Go Newsletter is being reworked, with an emphasis on making connections in addition to the Cafe overall, this new Newsletter will be just for those of you who want to share in inspirational stories, poetry, and tips on finding your inner expressive self. We all need to express ourselves.
The stress of being a special needs parent, alone, means that having ways to de-stress and concentrate on healing from our emotional and sometimes turbulent lives is key to longterm mental health. I’ll be presenting some journaling ideas and tips for those who want to consider journaling themselves. Starting later this week will be a thirty-day Writing Corner Expressions Challenge that you can take part.
There is so much you can do, and the Writing Corner here at Kat’s Cafe, and more importantly I want to be here to help you express yourself, while at the same time sharing some of my own works with you.
Are you ready to join the fun, the challenge of being a part of something new and original? The Writing Center is here, and I’ve dreamed of offering it to special needs parents since I first started Kat’s Cafe–I’m so thankful to finally see it take shape.
