Creative Writing Workshops


Are you a passionate writer looking to join a supportive community of like-minded wordsmiths? Do you yearn for a place where your creative spirit can thrive and your writing can flourish? Maybe you want to start a writing practice but need some company and accountability.  Look no further! Open Sky Stories is the perfect place for you.

At Open Sky Stories, I believe that everyone has a story to tell, and I am here to help you uncover your unique voice and bring your tales to life. My workshops are designed to foster creativity, boost your writing skills, and connect you with a community of like-minded individuals who share your passion for storytelling.

My background in expressive arts combined with my love for writing means that I incorporate art, movement and mindfulness into my writing workshops. This deepens the experience on a multitude of levels. You’ll learn how to feel words in your body and find space in your mind to put your story on paper.

Don’t let your stories remain untold – let’s write together and bring your imagination to life!
