  • Favourite Things – with Katie Sone
    November 18th 2020. 10.30am – 12pm

    Join BrightSparks Arts – in collaboration with Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, WORD! and U.matter – for this brand new set of Wednesday morning online creative writing workshops, open to all and designed to boost your health, wellbeing and creative skills.

    Each session is completely free of charge and self contained. No experience is necessary. To sign up please email hello@wordpoetry.co.uk and we’ll send you the necessary login details.

    A session exploring our ‘favourite things’. We’ll begin by thinking about our favourite things – such as music, films, books, things we miss, places to visit – as a starting point for longer writing to focus on a favourite object.
