Writing for resilience and emotional wellbeing in the Southwest

Sun 12 May 2024





1.30pm - 3pm

Writing for resilience and emotional wellbeing in the Southwest

This 1.5-hour interactive talk will explore how engaging with literature can support us all with resilience and emotional wellbeing. Louisa will share her lived, intersectional experience of being a woman with British-Ghanaian heritage in the Southwest, her writing journey, themes she is interested in, and how writing and reading others’ work has helped her. She will share some of her own, and others’ poems exploring key themes of resilience, mental health and emotional wellbeing, and diverse voices (particularly in context of the region we live in and connecting with the natural environment around us); explore writing-related ‘tools’ we can use to support us with our wellbeing; provide a space for Q & A and reflection; and share a simple writing activity for participants to try.

This event is part of Bloom Festival
Bloom Festival is a day of free activities to promote good mental health and wellbeing. Bloom is here to encourage and enable discussion, raise awareness of local support services and to utilise creativity as a tool for self-expression.
