Neuro Writing

A creative writing programme open to anyone living with a neurological condition.

Neuro Creative Writing is an online group supporting people living with a neurological condition to share stories, thoughts and feelings on paper.

The purpose of the group is to help you feel energised, engaged and empowered by sharing writing or poetry openly with others who may have shared experiences. The group is free to attend and is a safe online space run by Pauline Gilman, author of 'The Tapestry of My Life', and facilitated by a Brain & Spine Foundation staff member. 

Date: Sessions begin Tuesday 5 April and run twice monthly (the first and third Tuesday of every month)
Time: 11am - 12.30pm
Location: Online via Zoom
Duration: 12 weeks

Pauline says:

"Suffering for many years, I believe as a survivor of a malignant spinal tumour, our voices were not made to be stifled and quietened down, they were made to be heard. Therefore, let us not to be afraid of the dark, come into the light, let our dreams become reality, break our shackles and let us all rise like the phoenix from the ashes.

Participants are not expected to write full stories or poems but even a short expression or verse is more than enough, We will share with each other and discuss as a group.

I want participants to feel uplifted when they leave the session knowing that they have had their inner beings filled with positivity to go out there and fight another day. To deal with situations with a calm exterior and the knowledge that support is there to fall back upon."
