Do you need a way to de-stress and boost your positivity?
An online writing community designed to support mental health and wellbeing is launching February 22. WriteWell offers people the opportunity to explore writing as a practical self-care tool to boost health and happiness — no writing experience is necessary.
Social Enterprise UK members are changing the world for the better, and with such important work, it’s equally important that they take care of themselves too. In recognition of the work carried out by social enterprises, WriteWell is offering FREE 3-month places to Social Enterprise UK members on a first-come, first-served basis.
WriteWell offers the opportunity to tune into the power that writing and creativity have to bring perspective and fresh insight, particularly in difficult times. A growing body of research shows that writing and creativity can have a positive effect on mental health and help to build resilience. At the same time, being part of a learning community and writing alongside others can motivate, inspire change, and help alleviate feelings of isolation.
WriteWell is designed to work for people from all education levels and backgrounds, and as well as supporting mental health, offers the opportunity to develop writing and creative skills that are much in demand in the professional arena.
The online platform offers a variety of learning activities for members to take part in. There are quizzes, a monthly book group, live workshops with writing and wellbeing experts, and creative prompts for those finding their way with writing as well as longer in-depth courses run in small groups.
WriteWell offers a safe learning space with moderators managing the community day to day, helping members find and complete activities. It is easy to access and easy to use.
The online community has been developed by the Professional Writing Academy which already offers advanced therapeutic writing courses and has nearly 20 years’ experience of building online learning communities and premium courses.
WriteWell launches 22 February 2021. Social Enterprise UK members can reserve their free 3-month place by clicking here.
