Writing for Life


Why writing?

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. 

Take a look around this website to find out how you can use writing to enhance your life, at work and beyond.

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

– Joan Didion
