A NEW course is offering participants the chance to find healing through the art of writing.
Hosted by Write to Right, the nine-week programme, will take place in Westville from August 8 to October 3. It is being facilitated by Durban-based physician Laura Campbell and artist and theologian, Bernice Stott.
“We are offering this course for anyone who would like to find healing through the art of writing or those who want to write about loss, love, and life’s challenges,” says Campbell. “Writing keeps us healthy. It can prevent an illness occurring, progressing or recurring. Writing finds personalised meanings in times of change, struggle, loneliness, loss and illness.”
By the end of the course, participants will have created a meaningful piece of writing and will have gained understanding into the neurosciences involved in writing and in health.
