Write More is a three-month (or 13 weeks) course of weekly two-hour creative writing sessions for people aged 50/60+.
Sessions will take place at the MyClubmoor Community Hub, 56 Maiden Lane, Liverpool L13 9AW.
Following the 13 weeks there will be an opportunity to take part in an additional showcase where work will be read out and performed.
Participants will be encouraged to write creatively about their local environment, express concerns, and their vision for an improved community.
Previous participants in workshops reported an increase in their health and wellbeing, a boost in confidence, and felt better equipped to deal with day to day stresses. The pilot course will serve as a foundation to equip residents with skills in creative writing. The intention is to then hold discussions about developing future courses for the group that involve developing a portfolio booklet. Local councillors will be invited to the showcase event so that the participants can express their voice about their local community in a creative way.
