Bradford Libraries have a host of free events and activities for children and their families to enjoy on and around World Book Day. We are really excited that we can offer such a wide range of activities to encourage children to celebrate World Book Day; to discover both reading and their local library. This year we also have copies of the World Book Day books to give-away to visiting pupils as well as children who come along to our pre-school and after-school events.
There are also lots of World Book Day activities for pre-schoolers and after-school for school children.
These courses are aimed at people who don’t usually have the opportunity or space explore their creativity. No previous experience of writing necessary.
Each course will focus on connecting with the self and others and will encourage the finding of new ways of expression and the managing of feelings through prose, poetry, memoir or journal. Creative writing has proven effective for dealing with depression and anxiety, low self-esteem, it promotes self-knowledge, it balances your emotions, improves confidence, improves the ability to communicate and generally supports good emotional health.
The courses will be facilitated by Christina Wilson who is a writer, trained in writing for therapeutic purposes facilitation and previously a Mental Health Peer Support Manager with The Cellar Trust, a mental health charity supporting people with mental health problems across Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven.
