Thom Seddon will be returning to NWS in August for another series of workshops, exploring creative writing for therapeutic purposes and wellbeing. Using brand new exercises and approaches while revisiting some old favourites, this course is suitable for those new to CWTP or who've enjoyed taking part previously.

Participants will be invited to take part in creative writing exercises that focus on positive, personal result and enjoyment as opposed to commercial success or a perfect end product (although high quality, publishable material can often develop from the exercise prompts).

While the primary focus is on creative writing, participants will also take part in a variety of exercises including sketching, visualising and working with other materials.

Participants are also encouraged (not forced) to share their work with one another throughout the duration of the course thus also helping to build each other's confidence in performing and public speaking/sharing.
