HAPPY NEW YEAR …
Here are some images from winter here in Kent – frosty days and bright blue skies.
I am delighted that a three day Experience Poetry Therapy course is now live on the Canterbury Christ Church University website – 24th, 31st January and 8th March – bookings are open.
These days will give an opportunity to engage in the use of poems – both reading and writing – to promote health and wellbeing. We will also discuss some of the theory behind the practice and look at different applications. No creative writing experience is needed – just a willingness to participate. Regular writers though will come away with a substantial body of draft material.
Bookings are also open for the Lapidus Day in Cardiff on the 14th March. This is always an energising and inspirational event. If you aren’t a member already, have a look at www.lapidus.org.uk – there are over three hundred interesting people waiting to meet you!
And, I’m making plans to attend the NAPT conference in North Carolina in April …
