  • How to develop your creativity muscle – with lots of writing activities.

  • Where ideas come from.

By the end of our time together, you’ll have an action plan to help you develop your writing in a way that feels right for you.

Things you need to know:

  • There is never any pressure to share. You don’t have to read any work out loud if you don’t want to.

  • We don’t use break out rooms. You won’t be working with anyone else.

  • We keep our group sizes small. We want to get to know you and your writing. For this workshop, there will be a maximum of 6 people.

  • No experience is necessary! This is a beginner’s workshop. It’s relaxed, informal, and fun. We want you to enjoy writing.

Come prepared to write.

Our workshops are fast-paced and jam-packed with writing tasks and ideas. Leaving you with lots of activities you can continue within your own time.

We design these sessions to be fun and casual, a chance to take some time out of your busy week and exercise your creative skills, develop your knowledge and enjoy writing with like-minded people.
