UNLEASH YOUR WRITING POWER
Inspirational weekend workshop to unblock the barriers to your creativity – Build confidence and fluency in an atmosphere of fun and discovery.
Whatever kind of writing you do, or aspire to do – life experiences, short stories, journalism, a blog, business writing, marketing material or even a best-seller - this highly acclaimed course offers you an opportunity to let go of what is expected in order to make more space for spontaneity and creativity.
The learning approach is quirky, unconventional and sometimes challenging. A series of writing games, processes and group discussions allow participants to make important discoveries for themselves. We address not only the all-important process of structuring, writing and editing, but the psychological aspects too. You will learn how to bypass your logical, self-critical brain and tap into your more creative powers.
There is an opportunity to put your new techniques into action on your own work-based project. So come and be amazed by skills you never realised you have
Who should attend?
Beginners or experienced writers who want their writing to be more powerful and engaging - with more life, passion and style.
Anyone who wants to speed up the writing process and produce better copy in half the time.
Particularly useful for anyone wanting to kick-start their creativity and to boost their confidence and motivation.

Anyone who thinks they are not creative…but is open to being amazed and surprised.

Please bring on the day:
Pen and large notebook, or A4 ruled writing pad and ring-binder file.
A short example of your writing if possible. This is optional and will give the course leader an idea of your present writing style.
On Sunday you will be offered an opportunity to do a half hour piece of writing on any subject you choose. This is not compulsory but if you have any ideas, bring them with you, together with any notes or background information you may need.
Classes are Saturday & Sunday from 10am
