Words That Heal Women’s Workshop Sept/Oct 2015

This session has impacted my thinking of being more pro-active with my writing – doing more of it – more often

I am going to write tonight in my journal!

I really enjoyed the entire session. Next time we should make it longer…

I could spend the whole day!

I had no idea there were so many elements involved. Loved all the ‘fun stuff’… It allowed for a greater involvement.

Wish we had more time. What a wonderful afternoon. I didn’t want this to end. I really wanted more time. The knowledge gained was great. Thank you so much! Wonderful!

Very calming thank you. Insightful. Poetry for the soul.

AfterCare Workshop

"Nicki’s skills, presentation style, attention to detail and sense of welcome....gifted in her skills of being able to assist people to put a lens onto their emotion and translate this into the written form that they were then proud to read out to others.

Nicki also presented at a retreat for 50 family/carers of people with mental illness. This group had not chosen to participate in a ‘writing’ workshop and Nicki was able to harness their attention and deliver a robust one hour session that had people talking about for days afterwards..."

What participants had to say:

Found this course thru a sign at the library. Came on a whim. Glad I did! Entertaining, playful, action packed, inspiring.

A great afternoon, relaxing, fun, learning. My days now with a new appreciation & looking forward to my new journey. It has begun, one day at a time. Whatever it is, with words.

Wonderful afternoon. Enriched and inspired to give words some space to work their magic…

The simplicity & imagination. Will use what I have learned. Loved it.

Joy, beauty & peace - good reminders. Thank you.”

Thank you – really enjoyed this workshop. It was unexpected and engaging.

Thank you for bringing writing into the darkness of so many who so need it.

School Workshop - Brisbane School of Distance Education

"…The group of approximately 30 [year 7 & 8] students were welcomed into a highly creative and inspirational space...and were highly engaged in activities designed to stimulate the senses and awaken the imagination.

Many students commented that they hadn’t thought of poetry being enjoyed in this way before and others complimented the beauty of the take home resources…

Nicki was a prompt and enthusiastic presenter…and we deeply appreciate her time with our students."
