Led by Nicky Torode and Felicity Stephen
During this 90 minute workshop you will be invited to write through a variety of prompts, poems and prose which will enable you to connect and discover yourself. A hands-on session to help you release your thoughts, gain clarity and see things from a different perspective using expressive and creative writing. Come and write with us in a supportive, friendly environment.
Nicky is a trained and experienced career coach and personal development tutor. She continues to work in adult education in the UK and for numerous international online projects, training individuals in leadership skills, business communication skills, business English and employability.
She has an MSc in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes from Metanoia Institute and Level 3 in Counselling Skills. She lives in Hastings.
Felicity is a trained and experienced writing for wellbeing facilitator who is currently working towards the final part of an MSc in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes
Felicity also works as a voluntary English tutor and newly fledged PGCE and ESOL teacher while developing her own writing through poetry and a work-in-progress novel. Her background is an interesting mixture that includes journalism, editorial, and managerial roles in a variety of settings; she also has extensive experience in mental health – through advocacy, care and campaign work. This background, she feels, gives depth to her facilitation skills in writing for wellbeing – along with an excellent training at The Metanoia Institute in London.
