Lapidus/Metanoia Writing and Wellbeing Weekend Conference, Newcastle, 1-2 December
The subject of this conference is a cause very close to my heart ever since I first wrote about creativity and mental health in Issue 2 of Mslexia back in 1999. More recently Mslexia has been working with Lapidus (the professional organisation for therapists who use writing as part of their practice) to promote ‘safeguarding’ training for anyone running a writing workshop. This conference is the first step in that process. If you teach writing in educational, social care or community settings, do come along and share your experiences. I’ll be at the Mslexia stall for much of the weekend and I’d love to meet you.
