Episode 05 Creative Writing as Self Care with Kerry Ryan, Write Like A Grrrl
I have this hunch that not having a creative outlet can have a negative impact on our mental health. Or to put it another way, exploring creativity supports our overall wellbeing.
The biggest block and misconception that myself, and most people have is that in order to do something creative, you should be good at it. Kerry’s 6 week writing course turned that idea around for me. There is value in being creative simply for the joy of it. For the pleasure in the process.
I loved chatting to Kerry about this. You can find out more about the courses Kerry runs here http://forbookssake.net/write-like-a-grrrl/
