Write Life Stories
How to write your life story in a delightful setting in the heart of rural Tuscany — brilliant teaching and exquisite Italy all wrapped up in one fantastic week!
The Write Your Life Stories creative writing course is designed to help you produce your best work, to find your true writer's 'voice' and to write authentically. Among other things, you’ll discover the secret of SPICE, the seven steps to writing life stories, and put this into practice right away.
Writers will be invited, but not obliged, to share their work during class and to receive feedback. It is the group feedback that ensures everyone grows as a writer and increases in confidence.
The class will include several methods and genre and is perfect for anyone wanting to write about their own lives for an effective journal, memoir or blog.
If you would enjoy an injection of inspiration in a safe and supportive environment this course is for you. It is appropriate for students of any level.
'The course at the watermill will provide a safe haven in which to unlock your creativity, write from your heart and hone your writing craft. It will also help to remove blocks to your writing. Sessions at the mill will empower students to write in a compelling way that makes real experiences come to life.'
A student says...
It's safe to say that the Writers' Retreat in Tuscany changed my life. Jo is offering it again next year. The setting is spectacular and as I said in a recent presentation. Was it frightening and challenging? Yes. Instructive and inspiring? Yes again. Life changing? Absolutely!
