In observance of Mental Health Month, Creative Nonfiction is hosting a series of free public readings, harnessing the power of true storytelling to counteract the dangerous and shameful stigma surrounding mental illness.
You are invited to Writing Away the Stigma Graduation Reading and Reception at the Mattress Factory. The featured readers, fellows in the Writing Away the Stigma program, have worked hard to bring their personal stories of surviving mental illness to the page – and now they’re sharing them with an audience.
Writing Away the Stigma will be held on Friday, May 6 at 6:45 pm at the Mattress Factory. Appetizers and beverages will be provided, and if you arrive early, you can enjoy free access to the Mattress Factory’s current installations. Space is limited, so be sure to register soon.
