“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.
That change might be personal: Reading a great story can transport us to another place, from which we return with a new perspective. Or it can be political: a story can spur us into action; telling our own stories can be the beginning of an important and necessary revolution. It all starts with one word…
What’s your story?
As a champion of story writing, I coach and mentor women with their writing projects. If that’s something you’d like to find out more about then click here.
I’d love to hear what you feel you need to be able to write your truth.
I provide developmental editing services and write content and blogs for other people and companies. I also run writing workshops and groups. COMING 2021 – Introduction to Short Story Writing. More details to follow soon but if you’re interested in attending or would like to be kept informed on other courses please contact me directly.
Reading women who write their truth
My latest reading group is the Classic Feminist Lit Book Club which kicked off in October 2020. You can read a bit about the group on the blog here. We’re reading Second class citizen by Buchi Emecheta in the April group. Numbers are limited (I loathe Zooms with too many participants!!) but if you’re interested do get in touch.
My previous blog…
