Creative Writing for Well-Being
Mondays 7-8.30pm from 20 November online Zoom.
Creative Writing for Well-Being is part of our Inside Stories programme. It is a series of 10 weeks of free creative writing workshops with an experienced creative writing facilitator for people looking to find coping strategies and improve mental well-being.
Steve Wilson from Crave Arts will lead the Creative Writing Workshops. He is an experienced and empathetic tutor who will work with you on trying out different writing styles from poetry, storytelling, dialogue to journalism. Each session will begin with a gentle writing exercise before examples of inspiring work will be read out and discussed. There will be the opportunity to write and read out your work (if you want to) in a friendly and supportive environment. No prior skills needed. Just bring something to write with and something to write on. After 10 weeks you’re work will form part of a writing e-zine.
