Creative Words for Wellbeing Mini-Festival

Join us online on April 3rd and 4th for our Creative Writing for Wellbeing Festival.

We're all cooped up indoors with nowhere to go, so let's get together online, connect, and share our love for words and wellbeing!

We'll be running this event through our Zoom account - it's open for anyone to attend (up to a certain amount, so don't forget to sign up to save your space!)

This event will be 'Pay What You Want'. Want to support Lapidus in what we do and help us run more events like this? Consider donating a small amount through the link below. Don't have the cash to spare? Not a problem. Join in anyway!

We've tried to keep this mini festival as short as possible. Each workshop will be no longer than 30 mins and the total event shouldn't run for more than two and a half hours. There will be an opportunity to share some of your own writing at the end of each session, should you want to.

The writing focuses entirely on tapping into our inner selves, without any concern for narrative structure or grammar rules.
