Spork! presents: Hope & Feathers: Writing for Wellbeing
Part of Bloom: Exeter's Online Festival Of Mental Health Awareness
Mon 10 May 2021
Welcome to Bloom – our online festival to mark Mental Health Awareness Week. You can find out more about the festival including more free, online activity here >>
Join spoken-word artist Harula Ladd for a session of playing with words, engaging our imaginations and nurturing our individual and collective creativity. You will be guided through a series of fun writing exercises and to share your work with each other. Sharing creative space together is known to have a positive effect on wellbeing and reconnects us with a sense of possibility.
No previous writing experience necessary, just bring something to write on and with!
This 90 min session will be held over Zoom. Open to anyone, though places are limited, so be sure to book. All participants will be offered the opportunity to share their work at the Spork! open-mic on Fri 14 May.

She curates ‘Poem of the Week’ in the window of Totnes Community Bookshop, was recently Poet in Residence for the Social Prescribing Network, is the current Exeter Slam Champion, and the creator (& sole librarian) of The Postal Poetry Library
