Heartfelt Writing Weekend Workshops

 

Take time out to focus on your creativity, get inspired, feed your soul, and pick up some new tips and tools to take your writing to the next level.

 

Whether you’re a new writer or seasoned professional, this weekend of inspiration and practical guidance will rekindle the flame within you, and fire you up to get writing and keep writing.

 

These workshops focus on how to write in a way that connects with other people, reaching into the deepest level of their being. This heartfelt writing has the power to change people’s lives. We will explore practical writing techniques from this deeper perspective.

 

We will also look at tools to break through your self doubt and blocks, so you can get writing and stay writing.

 

This inspiring weekend empowers you to get writing and stay writing.

 

I was touched by a recent client’s comment: “She had the rare talent of making you feel everything was possible and that you deserved that everything too.”

 

Beautiful words and an understanding of craft are not enough – the substance under the words is what matters.

 

During the weekend we’ll look at how to:

 

  • Be a heartfelt witness to life, so you’re overflowing with ideas that you are passionate about.
  • Create characters who leap off the page with their fire, passion and humanity.
  • Focus on the essential essence of every story – making your character go on a heartfelt, inner emotional journey of change.
  • Capture a living thing. How to shape, edit and polish without making the final work lifeless.
  • Stay wild and free during the writing process, finding the courage to say what you need to say and therefore the freedom to inspire people to change.
  • Deal with self-doubt and blocks.
  • Build your inner confidence.
  • Get your creativity flowing again.
  • Reconnect with the joy of writing.

 

Here is some of the lovely feedback from previous Heartfelt Writing Weekends:

I wrote my first poem at the age of eight but stopped writing when a teacher praised my poem but said I could never have written something so good and it must have been copied. I stood at the front of the class in tears. The humiliation and criticism stopped me writing for the next fifteen years. Self doubt and fear of ridicule can block all writers, often for years, and I’m passionate about helping writers get their work into the world and not waste precious time.

 

Whether you’re writing a novel, screenplay, poetry, short stories or play, this weekend will help you approach your work in a fresh and deeper way. Contact me to book in for the next date or find out more.
