Christmas-themed Creative group journaling at the Alento Lounge in Fleet!

Sunday, 3 December, 6.30 - 9pm
Part journaling, part creative writing, creative group journaling is suitable for anyone whose interest is piqued.

No experience, grammar or spelling are required.


There's no need to come with friends (of course, you can if you want) as it's a very interactive and social activity.

I'll guide you through various exercises where your pen takes over, so you don’t have to think about what to write. There's no need to bring pen/paper unless you have favourites you like to use.

£19 per person (pen/notebook included)

Write for your Life courses and workshops are for anyone who enjoys journaling or creative writing and aspires to an easier and more enjoyable life.


No experience, grammar or spelling are required.

In most group sessions, whether a course or workshop, I'll guide you through various exercises including free-writing where your pen takes over so you don’t have to think about what to write. You then share whatever you’re comfortable with in pairs. This is what I call creative group journaling. It’s connecting, creative, often fun and a great way to have deeper conversations. It's where the magic happens!


A lovely way to celebrate your ‘you-ness.’

Whether you think you're creative or not, I promise that what you write in response to prompts will surprise and delight you.

“I absolutely love Claire's writing meetings. There's something special about the people who appear. The way she facilitates discussion and sharing lets us be our authentic selves and I can see the real me in the eyes of others and, in turn, see who they truly are. She has this warm curiosity and her prompts always lead me to amazing self-discoveries that I don't think would be possible otherwise. Some things are just hard to put into words, if you want to understand what I mean by "Claire Magic" you should check yourself. I can't recommend enough!" Ania
