Heartwork: Writing from life workshops

Join a small group to connect with like minds to explore your creativity and draw on your experience to write from life.

In this series of 6 workshops we will use inspiring texts and exercises and mine our memory and everyday experience to write creatively on different themes.

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?

Suitable for all levels of experience
