The healing power of writing

The Life Righting Collective is a not for profit membership organisation. We run affordable in-person and online audio courses for anyone who wants to discover personal meaning, self-understanding and self-recovery in writing about their life experiences.

By providing a safe space to share our stories with others from all walks of life, the LRC promotes inclusiveness, cross-cultural learning and mutual understanding . We raise funds to make courses available to those in need of sponsorship and to provide platforms for these life stories to be published.

We’ve always got a good story to tell.

Thank you

We are extremely grateful for the support of our funders: the Beatrice Jordaan Foundation, the Amani Harmonic Foundation and the Owls Barn Trust.

  • Memoir Course feedback:

    "It allowed me to write freely without the mind and the Critic interfering.  I feel empowered and realise that I can write.  Sharing was good for me.  The group experience made me feel less alone. 

    Dawn is an inspiration.  Her ideas are phenomenal, the extracts chosen were both thought provoking and  moving.  The creative exercises were very helpful in accessing our own particular memories."
