Go on a healing journey with our theme-based Writing for Wellbeing course. 

Each week builds on the one before, taking the writers on a journey that encourages authenticity, freedom and hope. If the course is done as a 10-week programme, the sessions will progress as follows: 

  1. Being  
  2. Belonging 
  3. Beauty 
  4. Blessings 
  5. Memories 
  6. Mourning 
  7. Releasing 
  8. Relating 
  9. Redeeming 
  10. Hopes and Dreams. 

Each session is two hours long with plenty of time to socialise and drink tea and coffee built in. 

Activities include a warm-up of some sort eg. creating a human knot for the theme of relating, together with a series of writing exercises and group sharing to explore the theme of the week. Writing exercises might involve a prompt like a piece of music, a quote or an image to explore in writing and might involve writing independently or collaboratively.  

  • Writers are encouraged to share but not pressured 
  • Everything personal stays in the room 
  • Workshops are a safe space

Location: Galeed House, 75 Nidd Road, Darnall, Sheffield S9 3BB.

This is a 10 week course which can be joined part way through.
