About the Workshop


In collaboration with The Royal Literary Fund, this writing for self-expression course is co-delivered by a professional writer and a student from our Student Development Programme. It helps people think about their experiences and put their thoughts and feelings into words.

These workshops will offer you an opportunity to reflect and write in a safe, friendly, and confidential space that fosters personal awareness and wellbeing.

It doesn't matter whether you're used to writing. You will have time to write about your life and experience through discussion and practical exercises.

At each session, the professional writer-facilitator will read aloud a short piece of published writing (poetry or prose) and invite you to talk about how the words impact you. Short writing prompts and exercises will then be offered to help you write about your own experiences, thoughts, and feelings.

This workshop runs over Four sessions, each session is one and a half hours long.
