Do you feel stifled? In a rut? Lacking in self-belief? Want to write but don’t know where to start? Worried you don’t have anything fresh to say? Maybe you simply feel you need a boost to your creativity? Wild Women Writing Workshops are designed to help overcome barriers holding you back by connecting you with your inner wild woman, the one you’ve suppressed to meet all the other roles life demands of you. 

In this taster workshop Magi will use a variety of jumping off points to help you find your true voice. By the end of the session you should have renewed energy, clearer goals and increased self-confidence.

Suitable whether you’re a complete beginner or a published writer. 

"Would I take Magi's course again? In a heartbeat! For original, empowering fun and enthusiasm, Magi's the Wild Woman for you." Barbara B., London
