Has your mental health been affected by Covid-19? Learn about how creative writing can help and try out some practical exercises.
Creative Writing is proven to reduce stress and raise mood as well as increase confidence and motivation.
The session will be facilitated Helen Boden who is a writer and an expert in creative writing for wellbeing .Helen will talk about the health benefits of creativity and guide you through some writing exercises that can reduce anxiety, offset isolation, build confidence, resilience and a sense of achievement.
Helen Boden will introduce – or remind you of – a range of helpful techniques. Find out how you can generate original writing by using published poems, pictures memories, or by attending to your local environment – or even your own breath and bodily sensations.
No previous creative writing experience required – but those who already write are very welcome too!
