Writing for Life
WELLBEING AT WORK & BEYOND
Words have the power to shape our lives in many different ways.
Through the conversations we have, the messages we send, the stories we tell… Each day we use language to learn, share, organise and get on with our lives. As we sit down to write (or type), we can also use this power for our own wellbeing.

I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means.
– Joan Didion
