What we do

We aim to spark and nourish creative writing potential in those that may feel at a disadvantage in doing so due to lack of opportunity, confidence, time or money.

Using our therapy and writing skills and experience we hope to offer space, time, encouragement, tips and strategies in order to get your fires burning and pen to paper.

Our workshops and retreats have received overwhelming positive feedback, thank-you!
