This  creative writing course with Anne McDonald to explore how you can use creative writing to mind your physical and  mental health.

This course is interactive and suitable  for beginners or advanced writers. The focus of each session is to gently use exercises to promote wellness, have fun, explore different techniques to help you get started, and develop habits that you can use in everyday life. Writing will take place during the first half of each session and the second half will be used for discussion and inspiration and how we can use what we have written to help deal with challenges we face on a regular basis. 

Each week you will be set tasks to find inspiration from your immediate surroundings and writing can be shared with the group or not, depending on what you are comfortable with.
