Caring for the Caregiver with Deborah Bayer & Francine Diodati

May 24, 2023 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Free – $30.00

An online workshop facilitated in the AWA method, offering a safe space for caregivers to connect, express themselves and experience writing with a group of peers living with both the joys, and challenges that come along with caring for other(s). It is hoped that in having your writing listened to, and in turn, bearing witness to the writing of others on a similar path, you will affirm that you are not alone on your caregiver journey.


Deborah Bayer has been a certified AWA affiliate since 2017. She’s participated in many AWA groups. After she retired from her medical practice, she began leading groups online. Her approach is influenced by skills she learned in Narrative Medicine. Writers of all levels are welcome, but people adjacent to the healthcare system (as practitioners or due to personal/family illness) will get the most benefit from this session

Francine Diodati (she/they) finds joy in the making of things, especially poetry. She has a BA in English from York University, studied poetry at the University of Toronto and trained in the Amherst Writers and Artists method. Their work has been published in Peregrine Literary Journal and Pinhole Poetry Journal. She is a caregiver both in her healthcare day job and at home with her special needs child. She lives in Tkaronto (Toronto, Canada) and deeply appreciates all this home on native land provides to her, her writing and family.
