Free Writing and Grief (Online) - Nottingham Trent University


This two-hour 100% online workshop, delivered via Zoom, will help develop your understanding of free writing, addressing its many benefits and assessing how it can be useful for one's well-being.

It’s aimed at anyone interested in writing as an emotional outlet, whether you have done any previous writing before or are a complete beginner.

During the workshop you will:

- make notes on raw emotion and special memories to look back on
- hear how free writing can enable you to process grief and events
- take part in a dynamic group discussion
- complete writing tasks from prompts.

What will I gain?

By the end of the session you’ll have built confidence in using free writing skills for personal development and well-being which can be used continually as an emotional outlet.

Level: Beginner / Intermediate

Entry requirement: No previous experience is necessary.

Here's what our previous attendees said:

'So much was covered in the two hours. It was well structured and delivered, and I enjoyed the level of practical writing involved too' LS

'Really found this course beneficial. It was like a two hour therapy session thinking about processing grief and how we feel about it. The option to share was good and the discussions were supportive.' CN

'So glad I attended, please run this again and variations on the theme! Charlotte created a safe space where we could write and share or be silent and listen. The writing prompts were varied, plentiful and creative. She was friendly and sensitive to the weight of the subject at hand - grief.' ML
