How you'll learn
Whether you want to practice expressing yourself to friends and family, you’re working on a memoir and want to dig deep to tell the truth, or you would just like to spend some time each week in a safe space, this course will give you a routine of writing reflectively that should begin to impact how you feel.
Our whole approach is to recognise what you are trying to do with your writing and help you achieve it. We always keep in mind what stage you are at and customise feedback and assignments accordingly.
Who it's for
This online workshop is for writers of all experience levels. You may have never really written creatively before, but find yourself craving a regular reflective time dedicated to expressing your thoughts. You may be in a practice of writing everyday but would like to balance goal-setting with a more mindful, kinder routine.
