Write Your Self: An Evening of Writing, Connection and Community
£20 | 23rd March 2024 | 6-8pm (GMT, UK Time) |

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you,” Maya Angelou.

After a difficult, overwhelming or traumatic experience, we can be left feeling powerless, without voice, language or agency. For those of us with a history of trauma, writing can be a valuable catalyst for healing and recovery.

Writers often tell me how fundamental it is to find community and connection when developing a therapeutic writing practice. Being witnessed and held by our peers can be as transformative and healing as the writing itself, which is precisely why the Write Your Self methodology is designed for group settings.

In this new event, we’re bringing together writers who have completed a short workshop, masterclass, or a longer programme with me, alongside those who are newly curious about the concept of therapeutic writing, to join us for an evening of writing, connection and community.

We will offer a choice of new writing exercises and dedicated time to talk about your writing journey with others. We will conclude the evening with spoken readings from two writers in the group. As with all of my sessions, everything that is offered here is offered invitationally. You decide what your level of engagement will be, always.
