Write Your Own Obituary Workshop

Online tickets not available
Saturday March 21 * 2-4pm * $10

with Sarah (founder of Death Positive DC and end-of-life doula)

Contact Sarah at for more information

We will start promptly at 2pm // PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

Join me as we learn about obituaries and have a go at writing our own.

We'll spend a bit of time talking about the history of obits and we'll read some obituaries (with an emphasis on ones written by the person who died).

Then I'll provide different writing exercises we can try. We will write and discuss, and then have a second round of writing and discussion. I'll be available for one-on-one help.

At the end of the workshop, people can read their obits to the group (optional, of course!).

Please bring paper and pen or a laptop for writing. Light snacks and drinks will be provided.
