Write for Growth is a  3-hour workshop for anyone wanting to explore the potential of writing for themselves. Activities are designed to stimulate creativity and enhance well-being. Each workshop takes a different theme, making it accessible for the first-timer and fresh for the regular returner.

It is fifty years since the novelist E. M. Forster died, yet the phrase ’Only connect,’ from his novel Howards End, published in 1910, has never seemed more relevant. In this workshop, we will explore aspects of connection and the forms it can take, as we seek to make fresh connections with words on the page. 

No previous experience is needed, just a desire to write and discover where words might take you. We enjoy discussing our responses to the activities, but you do not have to share what you have written unless you wish.

  • About Julia

    Julia

    From writing stories for my younger brother, to penning poems for the School Magazine and filling a growing pile of personal journals, the written word has always been part of my life’s journey.

    I started out as an English Teacher and subsequently retrained as a Counsellor. I have counselled in a GP Surgery and worked with various Employee Assistance Schemes and Charitable Trusts alongside seeing private clients.

    Although I have done some freelance journalism and written four non-fiction books, creative writing has become my main focus in recent years.

    My poems have appeared online on sites including Amaryllis, Silver Birch Press, Clear Poetry, Spilling Cocoa Over Martin Amis, Riggwelter and Ink,Sweat and Tears. I have been published in Curlew and Bucks Mill Magazine, and anthologised in Our Hearts Still Sing. My first poetry collection, Chester City Walls, came out in 2015.
