Feel Write: Christmas with Shaun Kennedy

Ref: C2346016

Imagination is a powerful tool for mental wellbeing. Not only are creativity and curiosity effective motivators but sculpting original ideas can reward us with a sense of control. Christmas too can bring feelings of warmth, wonderment, love, and gratitude to us all. In this one-session course, students will be given pre-session prompts relating to indoor & outdoor observations and item acquirement. You will then be encouraged to use these resources to practise descriptive writing and storytelling techniques, reflecting on the emotional and psychological states Christmas can bring. Further prompts will be provided throughout the session which includes lecture, exercises, discussion, and a chance for students to share their stories.
