Writing for Mental Wellbeing: Writing Identity

Tyler Turner (she/her) is a working-class writer, poet and historian based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. She has a Bachelor’s degree in English and History from Sheffield Hallam University and a Master’s in Creative Writing from the University of Sheffield. In 2017, she was shortlisted for the Wicked Young Writer Award and in 2020, she came joint first in the Barrow Hill Roundhouse Art Competition. Her work has featured in various journals, including Perhappened, Serotonin, Orange Blush and more, as well as numerous anthologies published by Dream Well Writing Ltd, with fiction forthcoming in Sledgehammer Lit and poetry in Route 57. She is also the Writing Team Leader at Crags Radio.

A strong sense of identity can help us feel connected to ourselves, our communities and our history, which in turn helps subvert feelings of alienation. In this session, we will focus on local poets who write to understand their connection to a place and its history. Attendees will be encouraged to do the same through a series of prompts.

This workshop is suitable for people aged 16+
