All workshops are pre-registered and pre-paid: email@example.com(Paypal)We will explore different approaches to writing as a tool for improving wellbeing, with plenty of opportunities to have a go. In this workshop, we’re not concerned with grammar, perfect sentences and gripping stories. We are interested in the process of writing and how it can help to uncover our motivations, fears, needs, worries, hopes and dreams. We will look at journalling, free-writing and owning, embracing and telling the story of our lives. The workshop will begin and end with a short creative relaxation so you’ll go away inspired, refreshed and energized. Refreshments will be available.

Tutor: Fiona Mason MA: Fiona is a writer, educator and mentor. She has written since childhood, but being widowed in her forties was the catalyst for deciding it was time to take her practice more seriously. Her first book; written whilst completing an MA in Creative & Life Writing at Goldsmiths University of London; is a memoir called “ 36 Hours”, and was shortlisted for the Pat Kavanagh Prize. She is currently working on her first full collection of poetry. Fiona is also an occasional visual artist and musician with an academic background in philosophy and a passion for wild landscapes, all of which inform her writing. She has a particular interest in using writing and creativity as tools for improving wellbeing.
Fiona says: “Writing, art and music have literally saved me. They have always been a big part of my life, loyal friends through the darkest times. Writing “36 Hours” finally allowed me to start healing from loss. Developing a regular writing practice really can make a massive difference to your outlook and wellbeing, whatever you’re going through, whether joyful or painful, and that´s what I want to share with others.”
She co-founded Word after word with fiction writer Andrew Reynolds to share her love of writing and language with others. Fiona is a member of “Lapidus”, the writing for wellbeing organization, and a professional member of “NAWE”, the National Association of Writers in Education. She is also a qualified yoga and relaxation teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga.
