Live Literature Event a Success!

Categories: News

Last week we held our first ever Live Literature event as part of World Mental Health Day. Our session was hosted by poet and writer, Jenny Lindsay and was funded by The Scottish Book Trust and the theme of the afternoon was “Creative Communication for Well-being”.

We were delighted to have 19 people in attendance at the event and the afternoon saw participants talking about their own stories and producing work that they shared among the group. We heard some powerful pieces¬†about the importance of communication, how it feels to “lose your voice” and not be heard, to feel invisible and powerless.
Feedback from the group included:

“Brilliant”
“I’m not so good at writing but my heart is bursting to break through with more meetings like this”
“Can we have more of these sessions please”
“I didn’t want to come at first but I am so glad that I did”

A huge thank you to all who took part in the event!
