Writing Workshops where you can learn to give yourself the best opportunity to learn the craft and truly enjoy your writing:

2018 Schedule

As a result of requests from writers I am offering one day workshops instead of my usual weekend workshops. I shall focus on four of my most popular topics:
'Writing from the Heart' 'Your Story Matters'

Ideal for the new writer or for someone who needs fresh inspiration and confidence. Your Story Matters’ helps people to discover a theme in their lives to give shape to their story.

'The Art of the Short Story' 'Writing as Therapy'

The Art of Storytelling’ gives you the creative joy of liberating your imagination and discovering how to write a short story. A special workshop for those who do not see themselves as writers but wish to tap into the healing power of writing. 


2018 Workshop Schedule

Please note that I have changed the format of my workshops to ensure that participants gain maximum benefit.

Instead of writers attending for a full weekend I have split the workshop into two separate Sundays. These will be spaced a fortnight apart.

This has a number of advantages for writers.

  1. You can stagger your payments if you wish to.

  1. The fortnight between sessions allows you to put into practice what you have learned in the first session. And we will look at this writing and discuss how you feel about it, in the second session.

  1. Also, you will have questions and observations to share with others…

Organise a Writing Workshop to suit yourself

If you would like me to come to you, within a radius of 200km, (flying is negotiable) you can organise your own workshop with my help. Your reward is attending free of charge and the advantage of filling the room with your friends! I need a minimum of 7 participants for this to work.
