Heartwork: a series of six themed life writing workshops

September 1 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Got a story to tell? 

Join a friendly and supportive group to unearth your story in this introduction to life writing course. We’ll be using prompts to fire our imaginations and mine our memories to write about what we know across a series of six themed workshops, starting Sunday September 1st at Exeter Library.

We’ll be meeting on Sunday afternoons, 2-4pm at Exeter Library on these dates: 1st September/8th September /22nd September/29th September/13th October/20th October.

Each week you’ll enjoy some protected writing time to write creatively on different themes, from home to travel, the nature of memory to the memory of nature and all sorts in between, with an opportunity to share your work if you’d like to. Just bring something to write with and your curiosity! 

If you’d like time and space to write and opportunities to share and connect in a non-critical, supportive and inspirational environment then why not join us?

We’ll be in the Rougemont Room at Exeter Library, accessible by lift or stairs. Please get in touch with any questions and to let me know your accessibility needs.

Here’s some feedback from previous participants:

“I was feeling nervous but I quickly felt comfortable and able to express myself.”

“I came away feeling inspired and with more freedom to write. It was well structured with lots of ideas and encouragement.”

Ysella created a calm, trusting atmosphere from the very start of the workshop, immediately making me feel comfortable and confident to write and share. I learnt some great techniques to continue using in my writing.”

Suitable for all levels of experience. 18 +

**The workshops will be a safe, inclusive and respectful space and I ask all attendees to adhere to a code of mutual respect. While the workshops may bring up sensitive subjects it is not intended as therapy. I’m always happy to signpost to support and services for help.
