‘Writing for well-being’ workshops launched for those who are bereaved

A series of workshops exploring the power of writing to improve well-being following a bereavement will be launched at our community hub The Mill next week.

We’re joining with poet Yvonne Reddick, a research fellow at UCLan, to run six ‘writing for wellbeing’ workshops, beginning on Tuesday March 12th.

The free sessions, which run until May 21st, aim to help people learn how writing poetry can help through the bereavement process, and offer a way of remembering someone.

There are still places available, with attendees encouraged to attend all six sessions if possible. No previous experience of writing is required.

Olwen Sutcliffe, a counsellor from our Support Team, will be joining Yvonne and will be there to support those taking part.

All sessions take place upstairs at The Mill between 1pm and 2.30pm on 12 March, 26 March, 9 April, 23 April, 7 May and 21 May.
