Finding the Words

Ref: C2422927

This is a Writing for Wellbeing course that you can participate in from home. It aims to facilitate personal development and nourish creative exploration and creative communication. To these ends, we will sometimes discuss some of the techniques that help to bring writing alive to help you convey your experience accurately and vividly. There will be a series of weekly video-conference sessions on Zoom where you will have the opportunity to write in response to 'invitations', share your work and hear that of other people in a (rigorously) safe, friendly, non-judgemental environment. The WEA’s digital learning platform, Canvas, will also be used to support lessons and provide feedback.
