29th of August 2021
In October, my book entitled ‘Skriv för att läka – en guide i reflekterande skrivande’, will be published by Lassbo Publishing House. During Stockholm’s Book Weekend, on August 29th, I will talk about the book and the healing writing process in conversation with Karin Löfgren, a deacon of the Västermalm Parish. The event takes place at Kungsholm’s Church and is part of the Church of Sweden’s program ‘Se människan’.

Reflective Writing – Course start
The course is conducted by Freezonen, a Women’s, Girls’ and Crime victim charity in collaboration with Viskadalen Folk High School. The course is a part time/distance program with 8 digital meetings and extends over one semester.
At the meetings, we place great emphasis on talking about the writing process and how we take care of ourselves in it.
There is no requirement for prior knowledge. The course is aimed both at those who have extensive experience of writing and at those who have not written a line since school. An important part of the course is also that you as a participant learn to work further with your development on your own.
Course time: 23th of August – 24th of December 2021.
