Creative Writing with Refugee Trauma Initiative

Recently we met with the fabulous Refugee Trauma Initiative or RTI for short. RTI work to provide vital psycho-social support to asylum seekers and refugees in Greece who are coping with the trauma of conflict and displacement.

RTI believe that, by connecting with refugees and providing them with continuing care, support, and guidance, refugees can overcome adversity and build new and positive lives.

We’re very excited to be able to work with RTI and the people that they support. In October we’ll be running a number of one-day creative writing workshops.

We’ll take the approach of exploring creative writing in a multi-lingual environment, allowing participants to write about the things that matter most to them in the language that they most want to use to do this. This always presents challenges. But it will also lead to greater engagement, and a much richer and more interesting range of writing.
