Wild scribes

I’m excited to share with you that I’m facilitating an online writing course through the Springfield retreat centre! Springfield conjures up creativity and magic for me, and I hope to do the same with the Wild Scribes.

I stayed at Springfield in the beautiful Southern Highlands in February 2020 for a writing retreat with Canadian writer Sarah Selecky. Thanks to Covid and the lockdowns that started at the end of March, I formed an online writing group with the wonderful writers who attended that retreat. I have since led that online group, and have now been invited to start another online writing group.

Springfield’s new online offering, Wild Scribes, will give you the motivation, accountability and support you need to add another 5,000 words to your writing project. Regardless of whether you’re writing fiction or non-fiction, adult or children’s literature, a novel or short story, this six-week program will help you clarify your ideas, hone your craft, and most importantly, offer support and encouragement. I’ll share tailored feedback each week, based on twenty years of editing experience as well as my own writing practice.

Join me for six weeks, every Tuesday evening 7.00-8.30pm, from 26th October to 30th November. We’ll be a supportive, encouraging class of six to ten writers, submitting 1,000 words on our writing platform Wet Ink and reviewing two writers’ work.

Equal parts motivation and momentum, you’ll have an extra 5,000 words towards your writing project. Something to celebrate at Christmas…

You can find out more on the Springfield website or you can send me an email here.
