With the help of Fixers, I've created a creative writing journal, encouraging others to express themselves through the written word. I hope the book allows other young people to start their creative journey!
I held my creative writing workshop in Portstewart on Saturday 30th November. Below is some feedback I received from participants.
William (18): 'I enjoyed spending time doing different writing exercises. They helped me shift my focus and think about things differently and I'm looking forward to doing it again.'
Conor (18): 'Creative writing helps me express myself. Events like these are good because I can connect with other people like me, who like to write and without people criticizing us.'
Jacob (21): 'Being given the confidence to just put thoughts on paper is really good.'
Wallace (30): 'The opportunity to take the time to write in a space where other people are doing the same, in loads of different ways, is very relaxing. This was a great event.'
Rebecca (30): 'This has been a great event. It has helped me express things that I've been keeping locked up and made me feel better for doing it.'
Sofie (36): 'Creative writing stopped me from committing suicide. Events like these need to happen more often to encourage more people to get writing for their own good.'
