    Creative Writing 1

    Students are invited to attend the creative writing course over 6 weeks. Come and have a go at creative writing to lift your mood! There is much evidence that creative writing is of benefit to our mental health in many different ways.

    As we write, we can express difficult feelings, explore memories, distract from negative thoughts and stimulate our brains.

    During our sessions, there is opportunity to write on a variety of topics, share writing in a supportive environment, connect with a writing group from the local community, and contribute a piece of your writing to a Recovery College book.

    You would be most welcome to join us!

    Session Outcomes:

    • To help people explore their identity and overcome difficult feelings, thoughts and memories
    • To help people connect with each other by sharing and appreciating each other' s work
    • To give people a tool to help distract from negative thoughts and low mood
    • To help connect people in the local community through the love of writing
    • To inspire hope
    • To raise awareness about the benefits of creative writing to aid personal recovery
