Writing for Wellbeing

15 September 2022

11am-1pm, Online

In a supportive and welcoming environment, we will be using poetry, prose and journal forms to explore our mental and emotional wellbeing, reflect, and find joy.

The aim of the programme is to generate a body of work, both individually and as a group, that may be shared to encourage others to discover the impact of writing for wellbeing.

Participant Experience:

“Writing for Wellbeing has continued to be important in enabling me to commit to words some of the memories and anxieties that have troubled me throughout my life, and to acknowledge also all that is joyful in it."

“I have found these sessions to be the perfect balance of empathy and support. They have enabled me to be far more reflective of my own life experiences and the written exercises have enhanced my confidence in writing and in sharing my writing.”

"Joanna is a wonderful facilitator. As well as being a talented writer, always generous in sharing her ideas and experience, she is a highly empathetic listener to other people’s stories. She allows everyone time and space to express themselves, and highlights aspects of their work with sensitivity and warmth. She has enabled the group to become an important and cohesive community, in which all members participate equally and follow her example in sharing, listening and reflecting with kindness."
