The Loss and Grief network is hosting a workshop to offer the opportunity for varied, no-pressure writing exercises. These exercises will teach you techniques for capturing memories and acknowledging fleeting thoughts and impressions, whether positive or negative.

We will explore ways of crafting a place for these memories, thoughts and impressions in the landscape of your day-to-day life. No special writing skills or experience needed, just a pen and paper.

It will be led by Dr Tamarin Norwood who is a writer and academic with a background in fine art. She has written on drawing, metaphor, memorial and grief, and has an interest in ritual and rural history. Her academic research explores the beliefs that emerge in response to bereavement.

The workshop which will be held on campus on 21 March between 2:15pm and 4:30pm. Please register your interest if you would like to book one of the limited places. Refreshments will be available throughout the workshop.
