Finding Your Voice

FeaturedFinding Your Voice

I am planning a live online group on a Thursday starting in September 2019. So a small band of us writers will be able to stay right at home and connecting across the world. Miraculous!

I’ve been testing it out and although it takes a few minutes to get used to, it’s viable writers’ group. You need a computer and we can practice before the course begins. There’ll be a Zoom link and all you do is click… and arrive in a room with other writers. It’s a visual, virtual conference room so we will all be able to see as well as hear each other.

Without having to hire a room, I can make the course inexpensive.

The main focus of this group is to find out what you really want or need to write next.  What do you want to say? What has been bugging you? What comes out when you write freely? We will be doing some exercises to discover what’s there at the moment.

In this short course we will try different forms. What suits your voice now?  Fiction? The personal essay or memoir? Poetry? Script? Song? Nothing is off limits in this experimental phase. Lets push the boat out and see where we go. All I ask is that you take the writer inside of you and our room-mates seriously.

Lately, I’ve been working on something I can only call  a hybrid. After editing my historical novel this spring I am beginning to throw myself into something different. I don’t quite know what to call it yet except experimental.  It could be an essay. The word comes from the French Verb essayer meaning to try.  All we can do, right?

The course will cost £80 for four weeks and there is one concessionary place. Please email Josie Pearse to ask about that.

We will be a small group  – 6 at most – and the idea is to play with ideas and build support for your precious work. The next stage of the journey, should you want to carry on may in longer courses later in the study-year where we will look at techniques for developing work.

To join Finding your voice please email  Josie Pearse with a sentence or two about yourself and what makes you want to join this.

Write & Meets

Occasionally we just get a group of writers together without a theme to explore things they are working on and may be a bit stuck with. If this kind of group would interest you, let us know.

“Penny is a narrative chiropractor.” Sarah C., writer and director.

“… the focus is on the process of writing, what helps, what hinders me from being creative… and figuring out what my own process is …. thank you for everything. I truly believe in myself as a writer and feel confident in telling people I’m a writer and what I’m working on.”
