Free online creative writing and reflection course for carers
Discover the power and courage of your own voice with a free, online creative writing and reflection course for carers with Care for the Carers and poet Evlynn Sharp.
Carers are invited to participate in an online course that runs for three sessions. Each week, there will be a two-hour practical session when you can explore the power of your writing and reflection through exercises and sharing.
This course is designed for everyone, so even if you have never written before you can take part, put pen to paper, write about your feelings and beliefs, and find understanding when we share our reflections.
Each session uses a specific topic that links to our key themes this year. Week one is Behind Closed Doors, week two focuses on Making Carers Visible, and week three covers Healthy Caring, Healthy You. Later, you can choose to have your words published on our website here so other people can connect with the wisdom in our community.
If you want to write, reflect and share, you can register by emailing email@example.com or call 01323 738390. Places are limited. You can register on this course even if you have taken part in the previous workshops, Carers’ Words, Carers’ Lives.
Place: The workshops will all take place on Microsoft Teams online platform. You will receive a link when you register your place.
Dates: The course runs for three sessions on Thursday 20th August, Thursday 27th August and Thursday 3rd September 2020.
Time: Each workshop will run from 10.15am -12.15pm.
Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01323 738390.
If you are unable to take part in these online sessions, we can send you a free copy of our Creative Writing Workbook: Carers’ Words, Carers’ Lives. There are lots of exercises and ideas to get you started in writing and reflection, and you can read the words of other carers in response to the writing exercises. Please email email@example.com or call 01323 738390.
This writing course is free for carers and is made possible by a kind gift in remembrance of Eleonore Barnard, born in Vienna 1916, died in the UK in 2019 aged 102. She cared for many in her lifetime, and in her later years, she loved those who cared for her.
