Writing for Health and Wellbeing with Graham Hartill and Victoria Field
Mon 13 Nov 2017 to Sat 18 Nov 2017
This residential course at Ty Newydd Writing Centre will explore the potential of creative and expressive writing to promote our own and others’ health and wellbeing.
The course will draw on your own experience to explore the different ways writing can be used to reflect deeply on life experience, in sickness and in health, and to bring these findings to others, whatever their ability or experience. It will be of interest to both beginners and experienced writers, as well as medical and healthcare professionals, counsellors, therapists, social workers, librarians, academics, teachers, service users and service providers in a variety of health and therapeutic environments. We will work to develop a supportive, joyful and safe context for exploring writing and our lives. Certificates of attendance for this course can be provided.
