WriteClub Intensives

We offer one-day, four-day, and week-long versions of our live-coaching WriteClub programme. The unique format of our WriteClub Intensives bring together the space of a writing retreat with the provocation of coaching experiments. The retreat aspect provides a powerful means to get writing done, while the live coaching invites greater awareness of how to shape and sustain an effective writing process. Everything currently offered online.
