Upcoming Events

 

Pen Power - Taster Session

at Sedgefield Book Festival, October 13th 2018, 13:00 - 15:00

 

This taster session will guide you through a range of activities designed to help you become more expressive and self-aware, connect with other people and cope better with life’s problems. Some activities will use a poem as a prompt to stimulate your own thoughts through group discussion and help you to write a creative response. Others will encourage you to express your thoughts on the page and through discussion in response to a subject, theme or object. There will be no pressure to share your writing but if you choose to do so it will be received in a supportive, non-critical way. No prior writing experience is necessary and writers of all abilities are welcome. The main focus of the session will be on expression of ideas rather than writing craft.

 

Pen Power - A day of writing for personal growth and wellbeing 

at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield, November 17th 2018, 09:45 – 16:30

 

Pen Power uses the tools of reading and writing to encourage you to become more expressive, self-aware, resilient and ultimately empowered to cope better with life’s challenges. We will use a poem or word as a prompt to stimulate your own thoughts and help you to write a creative response. We will encourage you to express your thoughts on the page in response to a subject, theme, image or object. We will provide you with breathing space to reflect. There will be no pressure to share your writing but if you choose to do so, we will receive it in a supportive, non-critical way. No prior writing experience is necessary. The focus of the session will be on expression of ideas rather than writing craft.

The price of £95 (or £85 Early Bird rate*) includes: 4 guided workshops of 1 hour each with plenty of breathing time in between, comfortable space to write, beautiful parkland/lake on the doorstep, two course buffet lunch, refreshments throughout the day, complimentary Wifi, free car parking. Just bring a pen, notepad and an open mind!
