The poster will set out the aims and achievements to date of the project Wellbeing When Writing, run by the Graduate School at Westminster and funded by the Catalyst Fund's PGR Mental Health Scheme. Through a series of workshops and related events, this project aims to tackle the stress and anxiety generated by the process of writing that is part of every doctoral project. It uses the strategies of the discipline of Creative Writing to help students to learn new and effective ways to approach writing with confidence and verve. In so doing it aims to promote wellbeing among students and to contribute to the successful development of their projects.
