Wordsmiths’ mission is to improve attendees' wellbeing in three areas: confidence, creativity and self expression. Our creative workshops achieve this by providing everyone with the tools to explore their own experiences through the cathartic act of creative writing.
The primary focus of each session is on storytelling. The mental wellbeing impact of the workshop is different for every attendee. For example, the positive effect for senior groups tends to come from the chance to immerse themselves in the history of their life, whereas attendees who live with anxiety often benefit most from the chance to share their work in a safe, closed group.
We are proudly supported by The Princes Trust and the Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Start Up Programme, in partnership with the School of Social Entrepreneurs, and jointly funded by Big Lottery Fund
