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:

    • Building Resilience (from Monday 15 November)
      What do we mean when we talk about resilience? When life throws a curveball, how can we overcome it and bounce back feeling stronger than before? By the end of this course, you’ll have created your own resilience toolkit plus a personal 5-point action plan outlining the steps you aim to take to boost your resilience.

Just Write

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

    • November prompt: Finding loveliness in winter
      Take notice of the world around you and find something unlovely to focus your awareness on. It might be a weed in the ground or the feeling of a sharp cold wind gnawing at your face. You might like to start by jotting down some ideas e.g. how it feels to be caught outside in the cold or noticing and seeing the remains of a twig where a flower once bloomed so fully. Can you find something lovely in this moment? Can beauty be discovered here?  

Book Club

See what we’re reading this month and join the discussion.

    • The Farm by Richard Benson
      The Farm (2006) is a poignant and moving account of a man returning to his rural roots in the English countryside, and we thought it would make a great read for Book Club. Described by The Times as a ‘meditation on the nature of love, work and family, happiness and belonging’.

See you in the community for these activities and more!
