International Overdose Awareness Day: Creative Writing Workshops

Beehive Lofts - Beehive Mill


Wednesday 10 and Thursday 18 August
10am -12pm

Creative writing workshops to explore ideas around our personal and group rituals.

Join us to share your ideas, about all kinds of rituals from the most mundane, daily activity, to things we do for physical, psychological or spiritual reasons.

You'll take part in short, fun exercises, then build some lists together that might trigger some further writing. 

No writing experience necessary, and nobody will be expected to share anything that doesn't feel safe or comfortable for them. We hope that by creating a warm and trusting space, everyone will experience the freedom to be creative!

Outcomes from the sessions will be led by you, the participants, and may contribute towards our International Overdose Awareness Day event on 31 August.
