Fun Friday: Writing for Joy

April 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Aine Greaney

Fun Fridays offer a refreshing mid-day break from work to indulge in physical, mental, or creative activity.

Join published author, essayist and expressive writing teacher Áine Greaney Ellrott to discover how expressive writing can bring joy, comfort and clarity to our professional and personal lives. Learn the “why,” “how” and “where” of practicing wellness writing for just a few minutes per day or a few times per week. You don’t have to be a writer to join us, and this interactive session will include optional writing and (optional) sharing.

Facilitator: Irish native Áine Greaney has worked in U.S. healthcare communications for 20+ years—currently in The Center for Celiac Research and Treatment at MGH.  Her personal essays have appeared or been cited in publications such as Best American Essays, The New York Times, The Boston Globe Magazine, The Journal of Expressive Writing, KevinMD, World of Psychology, Tendon (Johns Hopkins Center for Medical Humanities and Social Medicine), and Pulse: Voices from the Heart of Medicine. Her fifth book, a set of short stories set in greater Boston and Ireland, is forthcoming in early 2025.

Past and upcoming workshop and presentation venues include Seattle Children’s Hospital; The Youth at Risk Conference; The North of Boston Cancer Resource; The Justice Resource Institute (JRI); Hope Floats Healing and Wellness Center; American Holistic Nurses Association; and the Carver School of Medicine.
