FSS Cross-Country Support Community Meeting: Journal Writing to Cope with Anxiety, Stress, and Trauma

Thursday, June 1, 2023 at 7pm eastern

Join FSS peers around the country for a facilitated workshop to help you start or maintain a journal writing practice. ALL WRITING ABILITIES WELCOME!! Please RSVP here to get the Zoom link.
