“Belinda has been facilitating creative writing workshops with a group of girls involved with Start360 since January 2019.  Belinda met with me beforehand to find out a bit about what we wanted to achieve from the workshops and who would be attending.  She then tailored the workshops to best meet the girl’s needs, with a mix of individual, group-work and take-home exercises.

Many of the girls were nervous starting a creative writing workshop and didn’t know what to expect as they had never attended something like this before.  Belinda supported the girls from day one, letting them go at their own pace, building on their strengths and gently challenging when necessary.  They have felt able to express themselves in an environment that is non-judgemental and empowering.   They have composed amazing stories and poems along with having fun.

To see how the girls have progressed since day one has been amazing, they have been able to let themselves go creatively because they feel no judgement only encouragement.”
