Emotional Healing Through Free-Verse Poetry

Fri 4 PM | Convo Hall 5
Sat 5 PM | Convo Hall 5

Mikeala Evans or Ruth Adara

This class is designed to facilitate the healthy confrontation of one’s past or feelings for the purpose of putting them on paper in the form of free-verse poetry. Writing is often a powerful form of therapy, and one may often find that their experiences are far more relatable than they realized, and that often their healing process being written out can not only aid their healing, but the healing of others as well.

Mikeala Evans

As a domestic and sexual assault survivor, Mikeala turned to an old passion as a coping mechanism– writing. This decision produced her first poetry anthology, From Roots to Peace under the pen name of Ruth Adara. Through writing, specifically free verse poetry, she was able to confront her feelings and express them and a healthy and healing way. It was this experience which gave her a passion to aid others in doing the same, acting upon the belief that whether one’s experiences are positive or negative, they deserve to be expressed.
