About Lapidus International

 

Lapidus International is a warm community of professionals who use words and expressive arts to promote wellbeing and good mental health.

Join Lapidus International and enjoy:

  • The Lapidus International Journal - Three issues a year
  • A monthly newsletter of ideas and stories in the field
  • A calendar of events, both local and international
  • Conferences, opportunities and networking
  • A directory of professional members 

A wealth of events, courses, training, workshops and meetings are happening across the UK - from writing with refugees, the elderly and families to new ways of engaging with stories and poems. In healthcare, education and the community we are working with writing and words in ways which inspire, connect and promote communication, physical and emotional health, and enjoyment.

Whether you want to write creatively yourself or use writing in your work with others, Lapidus International: the Words for Wellbeing organisation links you to the information and networks you need.

Lapidus promotes writing and words for wellbeing through its work with other organisations and support of its members who are interested in, or working with others to encourage, the use of writing for health and wellbeing.

The Lapidus International Journal provides insights into the writing activities of poets, writers and facilitators working in diverse settings from prisons, to schools, to hospitals, to the community. It also debates the ways in which writing contributes to the wellbeing of individuals, groups and communities.
