part of the Way With Words Festival 2021
Join poet Darren Randon, in partnership with Macmillan, for a light-hearted look at using writing and storytelling as a tool for wellness, whether you have personal experience of living with cancer or have a loved one who has.
On the day, we will talk about joy in the context of safe spaces, habits (good and bad) and food! No previous writing or storytelling experience required.
