Writers for Recovery is a series of writing workshops focused on stories of addiction and recovery. Participants write about their personal stories of struggle, perseverance, moments of doubt and inspiration and the slow but steady work of renewal and healing from addiction.

Robyn Joy has been making something out of nothing since 1976, sober since the first day of 2016. Her daily life includes a growing yoga practice, talking to squirrels and her cat, attempting mindful meditation, singing narrative duets with her husband, and perfecting her tofu marinade. She publishes a recovery-based zine called “Best Intentions.”

On this week’s podcast, Robyn reads “I Began to Notice.”
