Writing for Wellbeing Workshop

Writing for Wellbeing with Andi Michael.
Friern Barnet Community Library, Friern Barnet Road, N11 3DS
Friday 22nd May at 6.00 - 8.00pm

Andi Michael
A relaxing and gentle introduction to creative writing for wellbeing. We’ll be using various techniques, including using objects, prompts, memory and narrative therapeutic practices to create beautiful pieces of writing, connect with ourselves and share our stories.

Join us for a two hour workshop and search within for inspiration and value your own stories. We will cover a range of different tasks inspired by narrative therapeutic writing, bibliotherapy and auto- biographical fiction. Share your own stories, remember detailed memories and feel wonderful doing it! No previous writing experience is required.

Writing for wellbeing is focused on the process of writing, not the outcome. So whilst we're sure you'll create some beautiful pieces in the class, it means that there is no judgement or critical feedback. Think of it as yoga for your creative writing muscles! It will be inspiring and invigorating, but mostly we're concerned with how you feel writing, over what it is you've written.

Please bring your own paper/notebook and pen.

The workshop costs £15.00. Booking is required - please book here
