Writing well & writing to get well #4

London (1)Last Friday I chaired the fourth event in our five-part series at Birkbeck, University of London, on writing well and writing to get well, organised by myself, Toby Litt and Richard Hamblyn. We had Nathan Filer, author of award-winning Shock of the Fall, in conversation with clinical psychologist Agata Vitale, both from Bath Spa University. Although similar questions have been the basis of our discussion for each event in this series, the outcome has been so different in tone and direction. This event focused very much on the rise in the number of creative writing and psychology students who have mental health issues, and how the university can best accommodate them. It was our busiest event yet, with standing room only. Here we are, looking very serious.
