People dealing with loss or bereavement are being invited to channel their grief through writing.Advertisement
Run by an award-winning poet and creative writing lecturer the free workshops are centred around the theme of losing a loved one.
Dr Yvonne Reddick at the University of Central Lancashire is leading the workshops at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery.
She said: “This is for anyone who has experienced bereavement and would like to learn how writing poetry can help them.
“They will learn how to use writing as a way of expressing themselves, and finding ways to help them remember someone who has passed away. Participants will get to meet people who have also lost someone, in a supportive and friendly environment. They don’t need to have had any experience of writing to attend and counsellor Peter Cardew will also be available for people to speak to on a one-to-one basis for extra support.”
