Description

Writing to Alleviate Depression with author Wendy Jones

Do you feel low at times? Depressed? Unable to tap into your creativity and writing? In this 2-hour event, we'll introduce writing as a tool that can help us move forward and bring movement into our lives.

We will think about how writing can help us explore our feelings of depression, helping us to understand what brought us to this point. What has made us tired and brought us to this stillness? How we can best rest at this time in our journey? And we will write about how we can bring light and energy back into our lives and move from this dip into a higher, lighter place and take with us the gold we have mined while we were in the dark, laid low and digging away.

This special event will be hosted by Wendy Jones, author of The Sex Lives of English Women: Intimate Questions, Unexpected Answers, and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl, the Biography of Grayson Perry as well as two novels: The Thoughts and Happenings of Wilfred Price, Purveyor of Superior Funerals, and The World is a Wedding. She also writes for television.

She has a PhD from Goldsmiths in Creative Writing and the books of Studs Terkel, and was the first person to be awarded the MA in Life Writing at the University of East Anglia. She lives in London.

Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, the New Yorker, The London Review of Books, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Observer, The Daily Mail, Vogue, and Elle, among others, and her books have been published in eleven languages.

As always the event is free, but there is an option to pay by donation if you would like to contribute to the running of Talk for Health's services.
