Happy New Year!

How is 2016 going for you so far?

I re-charged my batteries with some winter sun in the Canaries at the beginning of the year – it was a great plan! Since my return, I have been focussing in my workshops on the year ahead – guiding my participants through writing exercises which explore what it is they wish for. We have also been opening treasures from the past year – what do you want to keep from 2015? We have also been reading some inspiring poetry along these themes. The poetry and writing topics have provoked some truly engaging conversation and powerful, poignant writing – in care homes, community centres and my new Mimosa women’s writing group in Battersea (collaboration with Chalk the Sun).
