A City, University of London School of Arts and Social Sciences academic has launched the Ealing Writing Trail which takes place across Ealing during May.
Honorary Research Fellow Dr Poonam Madar has put together the month long event which is free and is aimed at anyone from 12 and upwards and who loves writing and using words to connect and create.
“The Ealing Writing Trail is a wonderful way to celebrate the ways words can build us up,” Poonam said. “Part of the inspiration for this trail is the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’, which is backed by the NHS. It promotes things like connectivity, staying active and learning – these are all the themes that I’m bringing to the writing trial.”
Poonam added: “I believe that the Ealing Writing Trail is the perfect way to celebrate the ways words can build us up. Technology has reduced everything to a short text or emoji, and writing can feel like a lost art. Ealing is the ‘space’ inviting you to explore and engage with words in the way that feels right for you.”
During the month of May, the event brings together an exciting line-up of free writing workshops, in Ealing and online, from creative practitioners in the arena of medical humanities, psychology, sociology, creative writing and many more.
And those taking part have the opportunity to win some amazing prizes including a free yoga class, free manicures, a free bottomless brunch and more.
In-person writing workshops will take place at the OPEN Ealing Arts Centre, located at Dickens Yard in the heart of Ealing Broadway as well as at other venues around Ealing.
All workshops are FREE to attend but places are limited. Register your interest by visiting EalingWritingTrail.com
