This project was facilitated by writer Meaghan Delahunt and was open to hospice patients, their families and friends as well as everyone else who is part of St Columba’s community.
A series of six short videos, approximately 5 minutes each, was released on a weekly basis between July and August 2020:
These videos acted as prompts for creativity. We encouraged participants to engage as they wished in whatever form that took. This included single words, short poems, stories, memoir pieces or… wherever it took them!
At the end of this creative writing project we brought together people’s different examples and shared them with others via the Hospice website and other media.
Following the six short videos, we offered two live online creative writing workshops.
Participation was free and open to all.
This project was kindly supported by the Scottish Book Trust.
Writing can be a very personal and private process. It can also be a public form of communication provoking ideas and responses from others. If you would like to share examples of your writing, please feel free to email them to the Arts team: firstname.lastname@example.org
