These are the Hands

With Anne Taylor

 

This workshop session will provide a playful introduction to how creative writing can be both a pleasurable escape and a means of promoting resilience and self-care.  We’ll use journal writing prompts and poetry to explore how putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) can be a way of relieving stress and making sense of challenging experiences. 

 

The session takes its title from a poem by Michael Rosen published in These are the Hands, Poems from the Heart of the NHS, which we will read and write from. Please bring a pen and something to write on. No previous experience of writing required.  

 

Anne Taylor is a writer, teacher and group facilitator who has experience of running workshops using writing for personal development  and wellbeing with a range of partners including the mental health charity MIND and with patients, doctors and medical students. 

 

Materials needed:

  • A pen

  • Paper
