New Online Writing Group - Dorothy House


During the pandemic when many of us are feeling isolated and missing connection with others, Dorothy House are inviting you to discover this new online writing space, a place where you can ‘drop in’ with paper and pen, your thoughts and a cuppa. Whether you've always kept a journal, and writing is a part of your life, or writing for wellbeing is entirely new for you and you're a little hesitant, they're excited to share this with you.

Friday mornings at 10.30am on Zoom.

After the success of the Writing Through Grief workshops, Tessa and Mike from the Bereavement Team at Dorothy House are looking forward to offering this to all within the community, welcoming everyone arriving with their differing and varied experiences of the last year and lockdown.

A writing theme will be offered each week in a relaxed, group setting, with time to chat and reflect. Please be reassured this is about the process of writing, not a ‘polished end product’, freely using your own words to explore as you wish. There will be opportunities, but no obligation, to share and please be reassured no previous writing experience is necessary.

* Witness your own thoughts and feelings through a variety of writing activities. * Uncover surprises and memories, give clarity to thoughts and bring reassurance. * Step back from the present, then return to it after writing.

* Hear other people’s stories of finding peace through writing.

In a time where many of us are feeling a sense of isolation and distance from others, they encourage you to join them and write your way towards springtime…..
