What is Writing Practice?

 

Essentially, it is the unconditional acceptance of your own mind, thoughts, and voice. Rather than evaluation or critique, we offer wholehearted attention - to one another, to ourselves, and to our work. Suitable for writers of all levels, writing practice is the perfect companion to any and all other type of writing. 

"I think the best thing I discovered is that everyone can write. It sounds a bit lame to say that, but really, you can write without aiming to be published or performed. You can just write to feel better or to understand yourself (and the world) better. I am surprised at how empowering it can be to just write, how helpful it can be for your mental health too, and especially in the context of a supportive group, to read out loud what you have written.

 

I was scared to commit and also suffering somewhat from impostor syndrome.  I am so glad I took the plunge. Doing your course for 16 weeks, during lockdown, has been one of the best decisions I made in these strange times. It has definitely helped me trust myself creatively in a new way and has helped me focus once a week on a peaceful practice. Thank you."
