Chichester Copywriter Good marketing starts with good words

Read yourself fit with Wellbeing Month at Chichester Library

Reading is to the mind quote

It was once said that, “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body”. There seems some debate whether these wise words can be attributed to essayist, poet and playwright Joseph Addison or his friend and fellow writer Sir Richard Steele, but one of the talented Tatler founders coined the phrase and it is a philosophy that continues to resonate today.

This March, Chichester Library invites you to take a look at how books, reading and your local library can help you stay healthy and well.

With a number of marketing and editing clients in the wellbeing and sector, from Massage in Schools Association and Story Massage for Children to those working in complementary therapy and with supplements, these wellness talks are right up Chichester Copywriter’s street and she hopes to see you there. During Wellbeing Month in libraries this March, Chichester Library will hold several events:
