18/09/2019: Tea & Talk - Mental Health Foundation

Recently, Society of Authors asked me to consider holding a Writers of Essex Tea & Talk session. I agreed and organised it for 8 October 2019 at Cafe Triple 2 in Colchester, Essex, UK.

This session invites writers who write professionally or for fun to be open about their mental health. It is hoped that informal discussions will take place where we can listen to each other about our experiences with daily life and with our writing life.

Personally, I've been reasonably open and transparent over the years about mental health and what that looks like for me.

Listening to each other thoughts and feelings on the subject is part of being open about it. Mental health affects everyone so these discussion need not be negative - nor do they have to be positive...they just have to take place in order for us to be well.

If you'd like to participate in this event, please come along on 8 October 10am until midday at 14 Long Wyre Street, Colchester, CO1 1LH. Feel free to stay for the allotted time or simply drop in for a drink.

I'll look forward to seeing you there.
