Dancing with Words
September 30th, 2017, 10am to 4pm.
Hedd Wen Peace Garden
A day of creative writing inspired by movement.
Using simple forms of movement we will explore our stories and begin our creative writing journey. In the afternoon we shall walk in the beautiful garden of Hedd Wen and beyond (depending on weather) taking our words with us, nurturing and deepening our experience in the natural world, and returning to write our stories or poems.

“There is no agony like bearing the untold story inside you.” ~Maya Angelou
Where ever you are in your life writing journey, this course provides an inspiring retreat. It introduces many of the tools of Transformative Writing™ that help minimise the inner critic, enabling you to re-connect with your authentic voice.
Transformative Writing™ brings together the reflective, expressive, healing tradition of personal writing (journal, diary, memoir), and the artistic, creative tradition of literary writing (poetry, short story, fiction). Uniting the two produces a unique blend of intimacy and universality that maintains the integrity of each elemental aspect of its origin. Joanne Klassen

I also work with Anna Levin to run courses on nature-writing and life-writing. Our last workshop in Scotland was very successful and we hope to do many more.
