Gnarly Writers Project with Heidi Everett
radical writers, poets and spoken word artists over the age of 30.
Gnarly Writers celebrates storytellers who’ve been in the public mental health system for decades.
These writers and speakers bring insights into the system and into healing,
which might just come in handy to anyone starting out on a mental health lived experience apprenticeship or seeking validation for a lifetime of service. Gnarly Writers emphasise that writing one’s own story can be more than a chance to impart words of wisdom: it’s also an act of freedom from a lifetime of being recorded by others.
