Handmade Writer E-Course - Summer Session

After a wonderfully received first session, the Handmade Writer e-course is
returning for a six week summer session. This is a perfect chance to spend
your summer daydreaming and writing. You will be encouraged to take a 
playful approach to creative writing as you are challenged to explore your 
life and the world around you. You will find a unique creative community 
and get individual critical feedback on your writing.

The Handmade Writer e-course will help you gather together material from
every source imaginable. You will learn about the craft of writing and how
to sew these fragments together to build your own pieces of creative writing.
The e-course has been inspired by the strength of craft communities as well
as the impulse to transform everyday finds into something amazing.

I am a author and experienced workshop leader and will be your tutor during
the six week e-course. I will set you a writing project at the beginning of
each week send you twice weekly creative challenges and keep you supplied
with enough creative stimulus to keep your imagination buzzing. I will read
every word you write and give you critical feedback on all your work, including
suggestions on how to develop your writing further.

The summer e-course begins on Monday 28th June and costs £60/ $87 (based
on current exchange rates.) Enrollment is open now. Places are limited to
make sure everyone gets individual attention.

I have had some lovely feedback on the last session of the Handmade Writer 
e-course. You can read it here.


  1. This sounds amazing Amy! I'm signed up for 2 other e-courses right now, otherwise, I'd be all over it. Maybe next session? I'll be back to read more on your blog! I'd LOVE it if you contributed some writing to The Found Art Project too. Writers represent!

  2. Thanks Emme! Glad to hear that you like the sound of it. It would be lovely to have you join us next time.

    Your Found Art Project is so interesting. I love the concept. I will see what I can do.

  3. Just discovered your lovely blog and would also love to do your writing course, but as six weeks into being a new mum I think I might also need to wait until next time. Nice to read a fellow English girl too!

  4. Thanks for visiting. Congratulations on being a new mum! What a wonderful adventure

  5. this sounds so very enticing indeed - love the way you've written it! Just tweeted it to my followers :0
