Writing for Wellbeing

Workshops with Jessica Clapham

Starting Wednesday November 8th for 6 weeks

Storiel, Ffordd Gwynedd, Bangor LL57 1DT

5.30 – 6.30pm

Jessica Clapham is offering a series of informal workshops for people of all ages to try out new ways of writing. The workshops aim to offer a safe space for participants to explore their own feelings in response to a piece of poetry, prose, music or images. Participants can do so by creating their own writing as part of this response, then choose to share with others (there is never an obligation for sharing one’s writing), and to consider the responses of others.

Who is it for?

The workshops will appeal to anyone who is interested in the power of writing for personal development and transformation. Writing for Wellbeing is a fun and informal way of writing without any academic pressures or requirements.

Places are limited to a maximum of 10.

If you are interested please contact Jessica via email: j.j.clapham@bangor.ac.uk
