      Writing a fresh start with Cheryl Rickman

Explore writing for wellbeing with a friendly bunch of fellow writers on our four-week courses. We have several starting this month – here’s just one of them:

    • Your Dog, Your Mirror (from Monday 17 January)
      On this unique course, discover more about yourself by seeing through your dog’s eyes. Over four weeks you’ll look at different areas of life to gain fresh insight that can help you live more consciously, all by using your internal vision of your dog’s personality and spirit to guide you. Intrigued?

Just Write

Monthly prompts to kickstart your writing, with space to share work and chat with other writers.

    • January prompt: Focus on the new
      Jot down on paper, a Word doc or your notes app one thing you have never tried before but would like to do, whether it’s starting a meditation practice, reading a new kind of book, achieving a particular goal, or even learning to keep bees. Take a minute to visualise yourself doing this new activity as if it’s happening now. Next, try to write a few sentences about the experience as if it has already taken place, paying particular attention to how it has made you feel.

      This is a simple but often effective way to help people start a new hobby or habit.
