Events

Read Write Express is offering a series of monthly Writing for Wellbeing evening workshops around the theme of renewal and self discovery.  The workshops will provide a supportive space where, through reading, discussion, writing, sharing and listening, participants will use a variety of approaches to make space for themselves and engage in creative activities, as well as considering ways of dealing with stress with the aim of developing perspective, self awareness and confidence.

The workshops may also include other non-writing activities such as light movement, breathing, visualisation, voicework, pairwork, laughter, drama games and other means of creative expression.  

No writing experience necessary, just a willingness to explore and experiment.

DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, ALL EVENTS ARE ONLINE via Zoom. To read about some of our previous workshops. please check our blog posts.
