I’ll be running a writing workshop with Ashford Speakup CIC where we’ll be crafting poems and prose for the Canterbury Christ Church University World Mental Health Day Writing Competition 2017.
Come along to the Scout Hut on Forge Lane at 11am on Tuesday 12th September and get stuck in!
For more details see below.
This year Canterbury Christ Church University is celebrating World Mental Health Day by raising awareness around emotional and mental health through various events and workshops being run throughout the day.
The university works to include and promote fairness and respect for all, which includes recognising the emotional and mental needs of individuals.
The University invites poems on the theme of “Magic moments” or short stories about “Working on Mental Health”.
This competition is free to enter and open to students, staff and the community in which the university works within. We hope that this competition enables people to think about emotional health and wellbeing and looking after oneself.
Poetry: Professor Doug MacInnes, Luigi Marchini
Prose: Janet Lloyd, Michelle Crowther
