You like to write for personal development, but it's hard carving out the time for it! And how to get started? Write Night is here to help! I provide the prompts, the time, and the space. You relax, meet others who share your interests, and write. It's an easygoing situation - no one reads or critiques your writing.
We reflect on and talk about your the experience of writing, not about what you write. There's no need to be a "good" or "experienced" writer!
Note that Write Night doesn't teach writing for professionals, or for publication. It's all about personal growth, healing from past difficulties and promoting your own health and well-being.
Benefits: Writing for well-being brings increased self-understanding. It improves confidence, mood, physical and mental health, coping skills, and overall life satisfaction. These outcomes are likely, though not guaranteed!
"Telling a coherent story about what happened helps me to think, understand and get perspective. It's amazing what a difference that makes. I feel unburdened."
~Write Night Participant
