Writing for wellbeing: The Power of Words Part 2

Ref: C3533495

Have you ever wondered the origins of a word, or been moved by the lyrics of a song or the sentiment of a poem? Have you wished you had thought of a way to express how you were feeling or found the right words to get out of a tricky situations ? In part 1 of the course we offered a small insight into the true power of words in everyday life. Part 2 will build on this using different stimuli and starting points so will be suitable to both past students or new - an interest in the written and spoken word is all that is needed to hopefully enjoy and grow from this opportunity.
