Creative Writing Courses open to people using EDAS; supporting recovery from addiction in Poole

Over 4 terms writers will have an opportunity to learn about creative writing, develop their skills and discover new pathways as writers and maybe even performers! Each term ends in a sharing either with each other or for an open audience depending on the confidence and aspiration of the group as a collective.

Due to the context we're working in, our rules are co-created by the people in the room encouraging a safe and supportive working environment. Sometimes we're happy to share, sometimes we like to keep things a bit closer to our hearts. This blog will document what we're happy to share.

The group is led by writer and theatre maker Gemma Alldred and builds on previous writing projects held at EDAS.
