A new community project offered by The Woodend Barn, Banchory providing a wide range of opportunities for people of all ages to engage in creative activities aimed at enhancing their sense of wellbeing.

As Writer-in-Residence in The Wild Garden, I will be offering a variety of writing workshops focused on the wellbeing benefits of spending time in nature.

Workshop content will vary but the technique of Free Writing (also referred to as Stream of Consciousness Writing) is the one I use most often to help you adventure into your thoughts and feelings.  In addition to providing a space for you to slow down, my workshops encourage you to play and experiment with words and how you use them to communicate with others.  Sharing your own story, and witnessing the stories of others, is a key element.

In order to provide a supportive learning environment, I uphold a ‘no criticism’ policy. This applies to self-criticism as well as to criticism of others in the group.
