Thriving through Writing

Ref: C2228832

Maya Angelou said that “When I am writing, I am trying to find out who I am”. In this course you will explore how writing calms the mind and empowers expression and creative thought. Your tutor will support you to find your inner voice and have fun writing for yourself. You will also have the opportunity to find out how other women have written for themselves throughout history and see how you can find your own writing style. You don't have to be good at writing or grammar or punctuation to enjoy this course, just come along and have fun.
