The Therapy of Creative Writing
12 August @ 18:30 - 20:30
An event every week that begins at 18:30 on Wednesday, repeating until 26 August, 2020
About this Event
Thom Seddon will be returning to NWS in August for another series of workshops, exploring creative writing for therapeutic purposes and wellbeing. Using brand new exercises and approaches while revisiting some old favourites, this course is suitable for those new to CWTP or who’ve enjoyed taking part previously.
Participants will be invited to take part in creative writing exercises that focus on positive, personal results and enjoyment as opposed to commercial success or a perfect end product (although high quality, publishable material can often develop from the exercise prompts).
While the primary focus is on creative writing, participants will also take part in a variety of exercises including sketching, visualising and working with other materials.
Participants are also encouraged (not forced) to share their work with one another throughout the duration of the course thus also helping to build each other’s confidence in performing and public speaking/sharing.
Thom has been a practitioner and facilitator of Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes since 2012, having graduated from a master’s course in 2015. He actually completed a Creative Writing degree first which – although helpful – did a lot of damage towards his self-confidence as a writer; always seeing negatives and getting hung up on editing! Discovering CWTP broke down this barrier, allowing him to find his voice again, and once more write for personal fulfilment without worrying about publication. This is the viewpoint Thom now loves sharing with others in his workshops.
