Write for Growth: From Stone to Story

October 5 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Write for Growth at Chester Cathedral: From Stone to Story

A building becomes imprinted with the lives of those who have spent time within its walls: have contributed to its creation or care; are commemorated or come to celebrate, worship, remember or reflect; whose personal events, experiences and encounters become linked to its surroundings.

As Write for Growth comes to Chester Cathedral, we will explore how this long-standing landmark of worship and sanctuary intersects with human stories past and present – including our own.  

Write for Growth workshops are for anyone wanting to explore the potential of personal writing. Activities are designed to stimulate creativity and enhance wellbeing. Each workshop takes a different theme, making it accessible to the first-timer and fresh for regular returners. 

No previous experience is needed, just writing materials and a desire to write. We discuss our response to activities, but there is no pressure to share your personal writing unless you wish.

Led by Julia McGuinness, our Poet in Residence, who set up and regularly leads Write for Growth Workshops at Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden.

Cost: £20
In the Cathedral Library
