Writing has proven to be a helpful way to allow people to express their views on all aspects of life that impact upon their recovery. We discuss and write about numerous topics such as survival, a safe place, comfort zones, fear, and perception.
Group members have the freedom to write their own words in whatever format they prefer. This has resulted in several inspiring pieces of work being produced, some of which have been published on the write to recovery website.
We have also established links with the Scottish Book Trust and were given the opportunity through their live literature funding, to invite local author Rab Wilson to run a writing workshop.
The group has gone from strength to strength in the past year and as a result, a second writing group is now up and running! The group seems to be fulfilling it’s aim of providing a platform for people to express themselves. It only seems fitting to share with you some of our members words...
“There is a sense of belonging, where your opinion matters”
“It is comfortable, constructive, and caring”
“Funny and humorous”
“We listen, laugh, and learn”
“No pressure, relaxed atmosphere”
