Writing for Wellbeing Sussex is a recently established group interested in writing and poetry for its creative, fun, health and wellbeing benefits.

We've begun to meet every couple of months upstairs at the Hop and Vine in Fiveways, Brighton. The format is flexible and ranges from writing together to discussing our work to planning events. Do get in contact if you'd like to come along to a meeting. The next one is on 1st October.

One of the events we're planning is Ted Bowman's  visit to Brighton on Saturday, 26 September, from 10 am - 2pm. Ted is a poet and editor who uses literary resources in his work in loss and grief.  He is a long-time resource for Lapidus and a former board member of the National Association for Poetry Therapy. He lives in Minnesota, USA.

This year Ted will use prompts and guided discussions to explore the theme of Belonging and its implications for life and work.

"Belonging is an evocative and multi-meaning word.  Whether used as a noun, ...a verb, even metaphorically, belonging often links heart and head.  To fit in, to be a part of, to be the property of…close, secure relationships…belonging can mean many things.  Opportunities to explore meanings can be important, stimulating and clarifying. In this experiential session, participants will be invited to explore the layers of meaning the word belonging evokes."  Ted Bowman
