Converge York

For the past two years I have been fortunate enough to be involved with Converge York running Creative Writing courses for users of Mental Health Services York.

We now have a small publication showing the wonderful talents of some of our students. Converge York offers a variety of free courses in the Arts and more details can be found at their website here:

 Converge York is perhaps best summed up by John Clare the Director of Mental Health Services York as he says: "Over two and a half years of innovation, creativity and passion, with moral support and not much money from agencies, a genuinely recovery-focused method has grown, people from all backgrounds with all sorts of abilities learning together and creating art work of real value. This is a great project with a genuinely exciting future.”
