Inspirational workshop to unblock the barriers to your creativity. Builds confidence and fluency in an atmosphere of fun and discovery.
Whatever kind of writing you do 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. Learn to communicate from the heart and the head and abolish writer’s block.
The learning approach is unconventional, fun and sometimes challenging. A series of writing games, processes and group discussions allow students 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.
The techniques are part personal development and part writing skills and the focus is to help you connect with yourself. Until you do that, how can you connect with others? The exercises are short, spontaneous, different and fun. They are designed to encourage improved co-ordination between the heart and the head, or the left brain and right brain
So come and be amazed by skills you never realised you have!
Who should come on the course?

The techniques can be applied to all types of writing including stories, editorial features, novels, blogs, opinion columns, family history, memoirs, biographies, business writing, marketing material, personal journals and diaries – or even a best-seller
