This week, I attended a planning meeting for a partnership with Imagine Independence to deliver a four week writing group. This is to be held at The Everyman in Liverpool, on Monday afternoons, which will be repeated if there’s enough demand.
Since writing The Single Feather, I have held many workshops and groups, and have realised that although I tend to over-prepare and get anxious beforehand- there is nothing better than inspiring others to write and equipping them with the skills to take on creative writing projects of their own.
I regularly receive emails now, with previous group members showing me their work, or letting me know about their progress, and this is a real joy. Passing on the love of the craft and skills especially to those who may’ve faced obstacles in life is an honour and a privilege, and I’m really looking forward to meeting this new group in September.
