A brand new, dementia friendly, welcoming activity in Sheffield. Cosy Creatives is a relaxed and fun online writing group.

  • Free to attend. Starts Monday 7th December

  • Delivered by art therapist Anne.
  • Great for anyone interested in writing, being creative & meeting other people online.
  • No previous writing experience necessary!

Sessions begin with a look at & discussion about a piece of writing based on a new weekly theme (a poem, short story or memoir extract). Then there'll be individual writing tasks, or a group poem written together (depending on what the group wants to do!)

Sessions finish by reading our individual pieces of writing or reading out the group poem, and coming up with ideas for the following week's theme.
