Writing ourselves steady:

finding sanctuary by writing about objects

Yellow Wood is pleased to offer a writing workshops hosted in our lovely cafe space upstairs by Sarah Dale.

In this series of workshops, we will be using physical objects and experiences to prompt creative writing. The aim is to use writing as a means of expression and containment, to attend to our emotional well-being. Writing is known to be an effective way of supporting psychological health.

These sessions are not about being ‘good at’ creative writing, but about using the exercises, prompts and support of the group to explore ways of surprising, delighting and soothing ourselves in what can feel like troubling times.

The workshop sessions will run from 13:30 until 15.30. Drinks & Lunch are not provided but can be catered for at additional cost if you contact us in advance.

Places are strictly limited so please book now to avoid disappointment. Our workshops are suitable for anyone aged 18+. If you have any access requirements, please let us know in advance.

about Sarah

Sarah Dale has had a long career as an occupational psychologist with an interest and practise in writing. She completed an MA in creative writing at Birkbeck university in 2019. She has run a wide variety of workshops and currently runs the creative writing group at Maggie’s Centre, Nottingham. She is a firm believer in the power of the written word to put names and words to abstract thoughts and feelings, and by doing so we reveal a better understanding of ourselves. Creative activity such as writing can also be a lot of fun and distraction from what is going on in our lives.
