Journalist and writer Harriet Walker is no stranger to the healing and reassuring powers of writing. As The Times Fashion Editor and recently published novelist in her own right, she says using the disquiet in her own mind to create something much more dramatic on the page can become a type of helpful catharsis. Harriet joins us this week on Raise Her Up to discuss her strategies for using writing to overcome and exorcise feelings of anxiety, and to share ideas with listeners of how to incorporate therapeutic writing into their own good mental health practice. It’s a great way to start 2022.
