Words for Wellbeing at Washington Mind
In the New Year, New Writing North is launching a new kind of Cuckoo Young Writers group for 15-19 year olds, in partnership with Washington Mind, Tyne and Wear.
Led by acclaimed poet and novelist Carolyn Jess-Cooke and group leader Hannah Morpeth, the group will be a chance for young people to write away their worries and frustrations, develop their imaginative writing and enhance their wellbeing by getting things out of their head and onto the page.
At the group, the emphasis won’t be on grammar or spelling. The groups will provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment for young people to write stories or poems, or write about what makes them feel anxious or angry.
Sessions will take place weekly on a Saturday from 9 January 2016, 11am-1pm, at the café in Washington Mind. For more details, email [email protected] or phone 0191 204 8851.
