Writing workshops

Writing is a solitary activity best done in groups. ~ Bill Paterson

Welcome to the writing community at Open Sky Stories!

You will find nourishing opportunities for writers of all styles and levels.

When I look back through my life, my unhappiest times were those when I was not actively creating.

I offer a variety of writing opportunities including workshops, groups, and 1:1 mentoring. All of my offerings centre around fostering creative expression. They prioritize the process of creation rather than aiming for a masterpiece.

Let me guide you through practices that are designed to help you to embrace your own creative power.

Why choose an Open Sky Stories writing workshop?

I believe that everyone has a unique voice and story to tell. My workshops are designed to:

  1. Ignite creativity. Unleash your inner creativity in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere. Our workshops provide a space to explore your imagination, experiment with different writing styles, and discover new ideas.
  2. Foster a writing community. Connect with like-minded individuals who share your passion for writing. My workshops and writing groups are not only about honing your craft but also about building lasting relationships with fellow writers who can provide inspiration and support throughout your journey.
  3. Overcome writer’s block. Stuck in a creative rut? My workshops are designed to help you overcome writer’s block, offering prompts, exercises, and techniques to jumpstart your creativity and keep your ideas flowing.
  4. Promote fun. There’s a longstanding myth that writing needs to be painful and hard. I challenge this in all of my workshops and mentorship programs. I want to help you create a writing practice that you enjoy. Together we’ll find the fun and joy that comes out of writing.
