The programme

Come on a six-month writing adventure with us.

“Everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

Sylvia plath

When you show up for your story, you can access a range of support

We’ve built the programme we wish we had access to when starting out. Here’s what is included.

Applications are now closed for our 6-month programme, but keep an eye out for more from us in 2021!

Editorial coaching & accountability

Need some accountability? Looking for a cheerleader, a commiserator, a commandant? Just need a steer when things are going awry? We’re here to be the coach and the supportive best friend you’re craving. The programme includes regular check-ins and brainstorming to keep you moving. As the founder of the Society of Ink Slingers and an experienced editorial leader, Lauren is your go-to on this side.

Conquer imposter syndrome

What nobody tells you is that writing is hard work. Many brilliant novelists have unpublished books, yet they had to be written. We’ve designed this programme for writers who want to build resilience and not let rejection get in the way of creation. Through journalling, mindfulness and self-care, we’ll help quiet the voices and get to the joy. As the founder of Write to Thrive, Jo leads this programme stream based on her experience coaching and guiding journaling sessions.

Community
& compassion

Writing can be a really, really lonely business – especially when we’re still in a pandemic and the world is a bit crazy. Sometimes it helps just to see a friendly face or know that there are people who get what you’re going through. By keeping our group cosy, we’ll really get to know each other and help each other through to the other side.


What others have said about working with us…

Jo has an innate and empowering ability to gently guide even the most resistant soul to a place of positive affirmation and self love. Her sessions were hugely therapeutic and thought provoking and her voice a vessel of positivity.

Lauren is an incredibly intuitive writing coach. Her group sessions are engaging and she is full of energy, with great passion and sensibility. She is a wonderful listener, and was extremely helpful in developing my work and bringing my vision to life while creating a safe space.
