Each week learners will be guided through creative writing activities designed to support confidence in using words and writing for wellbeing. The approach is non-judgemental; it is not about learning good grammar or precise spelling, but rather, about enjoying the power of writing to release creativity and self-worth. Working in a group setting means that the process is enhanced by the support and energy of others. All will be encouraged to share their writing, but there is no pressure to do so if it does not feel appropriate. A range of prompts and activities will be suggested to help learners develop their creative writing, including looking at objects, pictures, poems and other writing, familiar things and strange things. Themes will include poetry for healing, mindful writing, writing for change and growth, expressive writing and finding a perspective.
