A six-part series from Writers for Recovery and VPR, featuring conversation about addiction and original writing from the recovery community around Vermont.
Writers for Recovery runs writing workshops for people recovering from substance use disorder. In My Heart Still Beats, we hear some of their stories, meet people helping those in recovery rebuild their lives.
As deaths related to opioid use continue to rise across the country, My Heart Still Beats offers stories of hope, and lessons learned.
Join us Monday, March 11 at Burlington's Turning Point Center to continue the conversation. We’ll listen to segments from the series and speak with the writers and podcast producers. Reserve your free tickets here.
