About the course
I am passionate about creative writing for strong, independent folk because I believe that embracing your creativity is the key to expressing yourself in a clear, succinct & powerful way and connecting with the real you.
Hence the launch of my short online course Share Your Story with Confidence.
Join me if you are:
excited about conceiving stories which provoke thought and stir emotions
keen to express yourself in different and more creative ways
open to making international connections
ready to take risks and write freely
Different ways to learn vocabulary & categorise words
This would appeal to those wanting to think creatively and express themselves in new ways!
