Creative Writing

Open Arts creative writing class meets every Wednesday from 2pm – 3:30pm at the Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast.

The weekly creative writing class is a safe space for individual adults with disabilities who have an interest in exploring and developing their writing skills.

“At that first class, for a split second, I felt as if I had escaped the pressure of the terror and anxiety."

The video below is a poem called “A Need for Natural Silence” written by Andrew Ward, a participant of our Creative Writing class.

The video below showcases a selection of poems from Open Arts Creative Writing Group.
