“A word after a word after a word is power” Margaret Atwood
…because someone needs to hear it
What would you say if someone asked you to write your truth? Does the thought fill you with dread? Or is it excitement…?
We’re a nosy species, seeking the truth in stories, reading and writing to find that truth. I believe the acts of reading and writing have the power to change our world – for the better.
What’s your story?
As a champion of story writing, I coach and mentor women with their writing projects. I’d love to chat to you about your writing project and ideas.
I run writing workshops and groups.
Ridley’s Writing Room & The Write Lab
Every Tuesday evening at 8pm I host Ridley’s Writing Room where writers gather together in a virtual room to write together. It’s free and online. The Writing Room is a supercool space and it’s amazing how much you can get done in less than an hour. If you would like to join us, why not sign up here?
“The writing room is my time to write without interruptions from family. It helps me stay focussed for that time and having others doing the same thing is motivating. Even if I’ve not managed any time to write outside of that, the hour in the writing room gives me a chance to get back on track. It’s my writing me-time.” Hazel Walshaw
On Friday lunchtimes at 12pm UK I co-host The Write Lab – a second hour in the week where writers can get together via Zoom and work on their latest writing projects – a quiet hour in a busy day where words and page get the opportunity to meet in a safe and supportive space. It’s a bit like a lunch time running group – but for writers!
