Handmade Writer - One Week to Go

There is only one week to go until the Handmade Writer E-Course starts on Monday 12th April. This is exciting. I am thrilled that so many people have engaged with the idea of Handmade Writer. Thank you to everyone who has supported the course so far by writing about it on their blog, tweeting about it and signing up. I really looking forward to meeting the first class of Handmade Writers on Monday.
There are a few last-minute places available so you’ll need to register now if you want to be a part of Handmade Writer.

I have received many questions about the e-course so I thought I’d share a quick selection of my replies with you.

Will I get individual feedback on my writing from you?

Yes, definitely. I will be available during the course to give individual feedback. I am looking forward to reading everyone’s writing. One of the aims of the course is to build a supportive community of writers where you will be encouraged to offer feedback on your fellow writer's work.
How can I sure that I won't get too many writing assignments during the course or too few?

Everyone is different and I know that some of you will have more time to devote to the course than others. I believe in an individual approach to teaching so will try my best to match everyone's needs. So, if you feel overwhelmed by the assignments you can let me know and I’ll tailor them to suit you. If you feel you want more creative stimulus then let me know and I will supply it. I will do my best to make this a fulfilling experience for everyone.

What kind of writing will we do?

The aim of the course if to get you looking at yourself, your life and all the things around you in a new way. We won’t focus on one particular kind of writing. You will experiment and play with words. You will examine and explore all the details of your world. The focus will be on finding new inspiration, re-visiting old ideas and creating pieces of writing to be proud of in a supportive environment.

Maybe I’ll meet you on the 12th April?
