  • “An engaging philosophical, psychological and creative session; quite a feat indeed. It was fascinating to be part of a diverse group of people who so quickly connected and communicated. There were some wondrous pieces of writing and it was a privilege and joy to see people’s confidence grow within such a short space of time.” —participant

    Elise teamed up with positive psychologist Vanessa King to create workshops that dovetail the practice of creative writing with the science of wellbeing. These unique workshops have been a hit with literary festivals, corporate training and community-building organisations.
