What we're about

In writing workshops we use free writing and discussion to explore different themes, for self-discovery, fun and creativity. Past workshops have had us describing ourselves as a sculpture, setting our theme for the year, creating new days of the week, exploring time and how you can’t waste it going forwards, wondering what happened next to the hare and the tortoise, and much more.

Using free writing gets your pen moving. It can give us headspace, uncover different perspectives and sometimes surprising insights. It’s a lovely way to celebrate your ‘you’-ness, especially when shared with others. It helps us to see that we’re all in the same boat and gives us inspiration and encouragement. It can also surface creative nuggets and be a lot of fun. Yes, we’re allowed to have fun and write.

Writing can be insightful, and we might share things we write (always optional), but please note, this is not a therapy group and isn't suitable for replacement of individual/group therapeutic work.

About Me

I’m a Write-for-Life Coach who helps people find, come back to and express themselves through writing. I've been running writing workshops and coaching for more than two years.

"The lovely Claire led the session, giving us a prompt and then setting us loose on the page for five minutes of free writing. Each of us read out our pieces at the end of each five minute writing slot (always optional), and it was amazing the range of thoughts and images that were produced. I’m not intending to use any of those pieces for another project. They existed in that moment and I’m glad to let them go. They reminded me of the joy of simply writing, going wherever my mind takes me, and not worrying about form, function, content or purpose. I will definitely be going back when I can, and I very much look forward to more random exercises in brain splurging with Claire and the other members."

"I have attended several sessions now and have left each time feeling inspired by what emerged from such simple prompts: so unexpected the different directions taken by each of us and so lightly held that we each felt safe to share or not each time..."

About me
I’m a Write-for-Life Coach who helps people find, come back to and express themselves through writing. I've been running writing workshops and coaching for more than two years.

If you sit next to me long enough, I'll have you doing a free writing exercise, or two. I believe writing is the most useful tool we have, either to find, come back to or express ourselves. Oh, and to have fun.

I've been using free writing for myself and to work with others for just over seven years.

Write for your Life mini writing retreat

Online event

These mini writing retreats are time just for you.​

Writing for your life - journaling, blogging or anything else - is something we don't always make time for and these sessions offer a tiny escape from the noise for you to stop and do some writing or reading if you like. In fact, if it helps you to do the ironing, then go for it.

There will be a little time to share what we're each working on but the main purpose of this held time is to just do some writing.

Just being with other people - even on Zoom - can really help to get your pen moving.

These sessions will always be free, but if you'd like to buy me a coffee (or a Ko-fi!) click here: https://ko-fi.com/cpsdayoff
thanks!

Hope to see/hear some of you there!

Zoom details will be revealed once you've booked.

If you've not yet joined the Facebook group (for sharing writing, prompts, resources etc.) and would l
