Ready, Set, Write!

Speaker: Sonja Bonin, Bonin Communications

Participants: Max 12 spaces

Would you love to be a writer? Do you enjoy writing letters, e-mails, or facebook entries? Did you use to write a lot when you were younger but for some reason stopped? Have you always dreamed about writing a novel but never dared try? Do you keep a diary and would like to try something new? Is there a writing project you would love to tackle but don’t know how to get started? Or would you just like to spend an evening having fun writing? Then this Curious Course is for you!

We’ll be reading some, writing more, sharing and discussing if you like. Sonja will guide you through fun writing exercises that will incite your imagination and revitalise your memories. You’ll try out some tricks of the craft and be able to ask questions. The course will give your writing an easy to follow structure while leaving you a lot of freedom as to what you are in the mood to write about. Mostly, we will enjoy writing and you will take away tangible results and advice which can be helpful for any level of expertise from beginners to advanced writers.

There’s so much lust and longing out there to be writing. Yet, most of us seem to lack the time or courage to simply go ahead and do it. Start taking your writing seriously by having fun writing. We’ll be enjoying:

  • Playful writing exercises that get the juices flowing
  • Tips and tricks from a seasoned writer and writing coach
  • Inspiration from great authors
  • Chocolate :-)

No experience is needed (although it doesn’t hurt either). Sign up for a space on this creative course here…
