Our current creative focused services

Write yourself well

Writing for wellbeing workshops via Zoom

We all carry a wealth of stories within us and writing is a pleasurable way of helping us to explore these and to make sense of our lives. During these two-hour online group sessions we will write, explore and share together in a small group using a range of playful prompts to inspire poetry, prose and journal writing. No experience necessary, just bring yourself and a pen and paper or notebook/ journal.

These sessions will take place using the online meeting software Zoom.
