On Wednesday October 3rd I am launching a new, weekly Write It Down! Women’s Writing Workshop in north London.
Where and when?
Every Wednesday morning 10.30-12.00pm, at The Last Crumb cafe and work hub in Church St. in Stoke Newington, N16 0AS
Unique small -group workshops that give you space and encouragement to write down your life in notebook form, to re-discover the power of pen on paper and the therapeutic benefits of life-writing and journalling. An opportunity to delve in your subconscious and re-kindle your creative voice in a calm, peaceful, uncritical and supportive environment. These classes are not about publication, technique, grammar or spelling. They are about the importance of recording your daily life, in hard copy rather than digital, for yourself and future generations. They are about putting your heart on the page, sharing your stories and discovering how writing it down can help you create clarity out of chaos.
£15 per session, for week one – October 3rd, please pay on the day.
But I have no experience? I’m not a writer?
No experience necessary and I’ll show you that you are!
What will I actually do?
We start with free writing to clear our heads, then more structured exercises. You don’t have to share what you’ve written, most do but there’s no pressure. Memoir, autobiography, creative writing, poetry – lots of laughs and a few surprises. There is a strong confidentiality clause so everyone feels safe to write honestly about themselves.
Downstairs, private room at The Last Crumb. Lots of lovely drinks and food available to buy.
What do I need?
Sense of adventure, sense of humour and a notebook and pen
I want to be there! How do I book?
I will be posting this on Eventbrite but the first week, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place. Maximum of eight writers.
