Business / Wellness writing for local workplaces

Genevieve White.

A LOCAL writing coach and former editor of the Shetland Life magazine has launched a new business venture offering creative writing classes to local businesses and organisations.

Genevieve White said Weelwords will offer workplace creative writing sessions tailored to boost morale, strengthen team dynamic and help employees feel valued and cared for.

“Creative writing is an inclusive and fun way for participants to express their creativity in a safe and supportive space,” she said.

“I’ve been quite bowled over by the positive feedback I’ve received from participants in my sessions, several of whom have described hugely positive changes in their lives as a result of coming along to the sessions.”

White has been facilitating well-being writing sessions at Shetland Arts since 2019.

She added: “With the long, dark Shetland winter coming, workplaces can become a little dreary. Add the current economic uncertainty to the mix and the picture gets even bleaker.

“It’s really important that leaders look for inclusive and sustainable ways to nurture the people they work with, as this will make workplaces so much happier, healthier and, of course, productive.”

Sessions are tailor made to suit the needs and interests of participants, she added.
