Poetic Legacies

Poetic Legacies is a creative writing based volunteering project that aims to support students who have been affected by bereavement, and end-of-life patients in the local area. 

Sessions will match volunteers with students who have experienced a bereavement, so that they can work collaboratively on a poem or short piece of creative writing that celebrates the life of a lost loved one, or provides some sort of therapeutic benefit.

The on-campus session will also provide a chance for volunteers to write original poetry and prose for a book that will be used by local hospices and palliative wards, and read to end-of-life patients and thier families. 

Sessions will be supported by our own Wellbeing Ambassadors.
