Grief Writing Workshop: Finding Peace in Landscapes of Loss, a Bath Arts Collective Event
21 March @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Whether you are living with recent loss or were bereaved long in the past, this gentle, flexible and no-pressure workshop will offer practical tools to get you through the day (and night) when you are grieving. Simple, inventive writing exercises will guide you to map the ‘landscape’ of your own grief experience, trace the many paths through it, and find peaceful places to spend time. We will explore the difference between writing feelings, writing facts and writing fiction, with options for take-home activities. Anyone can attend; no special writing skills or experience necessary.
This event has kindly been supported by The Centre for Death and Society (CDAS) at the University of Bath – an internationally recognised research centre focusing on the interdisciplinary social aspects of death, dying and bereavement.
