Caring for the Caregiver

A free reflective & supportive virtual writing experience.

2024: 10AM – 12PM 

Feb 9 (in person), May 7 (virtual),

Aug 9 (in person), Nov 14 (virtual)


Annette Januzzi Wick & Pauletta Hansel lead online creative writing experiences designed to help family caregivers, past or present, explore the gifts and challenges of their lives through poetry, storytelling, and journaling.

 In this workshop, participants write to reflect on their own journey and to share as much or as little writing in a supportive and safe circle of other caregivers. No previous writing experience is necessary. A Zoom link will be sent to all registered participants prior to class date. 


Annette Januzzi Wick is the author of I’ll Have Some of Yours, published for those who struggle to find reason, meaning and humanity in the caregiving experience. Pauletta Hansel was Cincinnati’s first Poet Laureate. Her book, Palindrome, poems about her mother’s journey through dementia, won Berea College’s Weatherford Award. Visit or to learn more.


Together and separately, they have led workshops in support of caregivers for Hospice of Cincinnati, the Alzheimer’s Association of Cincinnati and of Knoxville, Arden Courts, the Alois Alzheimer Center, the Caregiver’s Assistance Network, Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio, Episcopal Retirement Services and other organizations.
