Re Write Your Story
We each have core narratives we carry within us, stories that trace the arc of our lives and define who we are. But what if we’re more than the combined total of our collected stories? And what if we could rewrite the stories which brought us here, and then use those stories to cast a richer future?
This short course of six workshops will focus on both the fundamentals of creative writing and power of internalised stories. Participants will learn how to use the stories of their own lives as the basis from which to shape credible characters, build tension, and develop narrative arcs that are captivating and transformative. They will also learn how to edit and polish their work, using the drafting process to build skills, confidence, and resilience. These workshops will focus on the joy of writing and the power of stories.
When: 6 workshops on Fridays, 9.30am - 12pm. 25 Oct - 29 Nov, 2019.
Where: 1 Market Street, Bangalow.
Cost: $275 - morning tea included

Healing through Writing
Healing through Writing is as much a perspective as it is a process. Based on decades of research into trauma, survival, and healing, and the way language and writing aid our ability to contextualise and articulate painful experiences, the Healing through Writing program has been developed by myself and author Jessie Cole and is dedicated to helping writers (new and established) give voice to their stories and move forward from trauma.
Offered across a range of platforms - from in-person full-day, weekend, and five-day workshops, to online writing groups and one-to-one mentorships - Healing through Trauma is an initiative born of a love of writing and a passionate belief in the healing power of language.
Workshops dates for 2020 are currently being finalised and will be published as soon as possible. If you would like to find out more, please visit the Healing through Writing page and complete the contact form.
