In my life I’ve struggled with considering myself “a writer,“ but according to one of my favorite writers, if you write, you’re a writer. So I suppose I am!
The other thing that strikes me in this moment, as I write my self-introduction for Dr. C’s June 2021 Share the Wealth, is that I frequently surprise myself by reading something I’ve written long enough ago that I almost don’t remember writing it – and sometimes, I think, who wrote that!? That’s beautiful!
And in those moments, I think of all the people in my life who might benefit from those particular words, and often there are at least one or two people who happen to need just those words, at just this time, and it’s in those moments that I feel like a writer.
Join us for a discussion on how the written word can offer compassion, healing, solace… Jessica will share some of her poems, explain how her writing process got her through some of her darkest days, and share stories of how the written word has brought guidance, brightness and hope.
Jessica holds a leadership position at Edward Jones, where she uses the power of words to help people dig below the surface of corporate culture to understand their intrinsic motivators and goals, in order to reach whatever potential they feel ready to achieve. Writing has been a passion of hers since she was able to hold a pencil. She lives in South St. Louis City with her two dogs, Sana & Lucy, and her boyfriend, Tim.
We gather on Sunday 27 June
7:00 p.m. Central Time

P.S. Jessica studied with me at SLU in the fall of 2005, and I am grateful for her presence in my life!
