Writing for Wellbeing with Poonam aims to help you in a positive and creative way.

In this two hour Wellbeing workshop Poonam guides you through specific writing activities designed to help release the words within you in a positive and creative way. You will also discover how you can use these writing activities throughout life.

Writing doesn’t always have to be a solitary experience. And that is what makes group workshop so great; they are enhanced by the support and energy of other participants. We will also be sure to begin with warm up writing games to chase away those “I can’t write anything” jitters.

No previous experience is needed. And what’s more, it all takes place in a supportive, nurturing, non-judgemental space. You never have to read out anything you have written—so take comfort in writing whatever you want and in whatever style you want!
