– Do you feel in need of calm or want to live more mindfully?

– Are you interested in writing or willing to use writing to help you relax?

– Would you welcome the chance to unwind using the power of writing in small, supportive group?

You only need notebook and pen (flowers are optional!)

You don’t need to be an experienced or skilled writer to join the group. You just need to be willing to see where the words take you. All you need is pen and paper and a quiet space to write.

In each session I’ll provide a variety of different prompts to get the words flowing. There’s no pressure to share your work but there will be an opportunity to do so if you wish.   

Writing has helped me through some of the darkest times in my life and I strongly believe it can bring healing and hope to our lives. I’m an experienced creative writing tutor and community workshop facilitator. I have completed the Mindfulness Association’s Mindfulness Based Living Course. I started the mindful writing sessions in March 2020 to share the healing power of words during this hugely difficult time.

Here’s what previous participants have said about the sessions:

“They are without doubt the highlight of my week and keep my mind nourished for days afterwards.”


“A warm supportive writing environment…Highly recommended!”


The sessions take place on the second Monday and Wednesday in each month at 6.30pm (UK time) for 45 minutes. Sessions cost £5.  If you’d like to join, please click below to pay by Paypal or email me at alyswestwrites@gmail.com. I know everyone in the group will make you very welcome.
