Out of my many years of researching writing and wellbeing, I have developed The WRITE Model to offer a conceptual framework for understanding what we construct in writing, not only what we unburden. It is an attempt to tease out the nuances of writing in relation to our wellbeing, and to supply straightforward language for discussing this complex process.
The below guide is designed to be read alongside a research article published in the academic journal, Writing in Practice, in June 2022. To complement my theoretical discussion there, here I set out some suggested exercises and reflective questions. These, I hope, offer some further hints for applying the model.
