Creative Writing Workshops

From Discipline to Blissipline: Establish, channel and move full speed ahead


Content Overview: Perfect for practitioners with a vision, but no action plan. Perhaps you've had a creative idea floating around for some time, but you're not sure how you'll bring it to life. Maybe you've visualised the end goal for a novel, film, play, web series, poetry performance, etc., but you're not sure how to get from A (the idea in your head) to B (the reality). When all you have is a half-baked concept, starting a creative project, a pen and blank page can be overwhelming, especially when it needs to work around your day job, the house chores, and a well-thought-out Netflix itinerary! Breaking down your big literary plans into manageable, bite-sized chunks increases the likelihood of your ideas coming into fruition by 400% - a statistic cited in the 'School of trust-me-I'm-a-writer-and-story-consultant'. It's time to embrace your love for writing, establish the ideas you've had for a blog, a poem, an essay, a novel, a script, etc., set manageable and fun goals, put those plans into action and inspire others as well as yourself in ways you never imagined, but were always capable of!
