Read Write Express – Writing for Wellbeing and Self-awareness
Sat 18 May 2024 to Sat 18 May 2024
Read Write Express offers writing for wellbeing workshops for adults who wish to explore writing as a means of improving wellbeing, gaining confidence and moving forward with life.

The workshops provide a nurturing and supportive space to experience different writing and other fun, releasing and relaxing exercises to help participants stimulate their creativity and encourage self-awareness. Writing experience is not essential, just a willingness to join in and give it a go.

Writing is optionally shared with the group and participants are encouraged to respond from their own experience of hearing it as opposed to offering a critique. This is the difference between writing for self-development and creative writing for literary development. Writing and voicing writing in this way can be therapeutic but these workshops are not group therapy and participants need to be aware of this when choosing what to write or share.

Next workshop:

Saturday 18 May 2024, 9.45am to 12.30pm, Online - Inheriting

Through reading, reflection, free-writing, using a poem to prompt writing, discussion and sharing, we will contemplate the theme of "inheriting" and how we might think of what we receive by way of inheritance. For this workshop you will need a notebook and pen. To book, click here.
