Writing Scared- Introductory Course

*Do you dream of writing but keep making excuses such as lack of time,  inspiration or motivation?

*Do you want to figure out why you keep procrastinating and create a writing routine that works with accountability?
*Feeling blocked creatively?
*Want to express yourself but can’t find the words and need some support?
*Do you want to write but don’t know how or where to start?
*Have you been secretly writing for years but have not put your work out into the world for fear of judgment or rejection?

Embark on a six week creative writing journey of self
expression and discovery.

Every week, various creative techniques not limited to writing are used to help you unblock and let go of your fears.

No previous writing experience is needed to participate.

This course will enable and empower you with the creative tools to help you find your voice as a writer.
In this course, not only will you find out what you have to say through writing but more importantly you will find the VALUE of your story.

We all have a story to tell but fear and our inner critic stops us from sharing who we really are.

This is an opportunity to play and to find out who you are as a writer, learn how to unlock memories and document your stories to reflect who you truly are.

This is not a traditional creative writing course in that you will NOT be taught story structure and your writing will not be critiqued. Write On! focuses on helping you access your stories, how to connect to your voice and unblock yourself creatively. You will be left feeling more confident about the kind of stories that you want to write and empowered.

This course is limited to six people to provide a supportive, relaxed and safe environment for personal development and healing.

What previous participants have said about the course:

“The thought of writing had always intimidated me even though I am a creative person by nature. I never expected to achieve so much within 6 short weeks but the Introductory Course has opened my mind to developing a new creative skill and a wealth of opportunities. Amy creates a safe space in which to write openly and honestly without judgement. I cannot wait to begin the Advanced Course and thoroughly recommend Write On to anyone.”

Matt Newman – Actor

“It has been a journey of self discovery. I sincerely encourage anyone to do this. It has put me in touch with myself again and taught me things more valuable than gold. The best thing I’ve done for myself this life time. Thank you to my group and my teacher for the revelations.”

Fiona Hare – Singer/Songwriter

“My goal this year was to get out of my comfort zone and find out what I want to do with my life. Write On has given me a platform to do this. Write On! took me by surprise and each time I come to class I look forward to see what will happen. It’s a highlight of my week!

I wanted to write non-fiction but never thought that my story had any worth only to discover the total opposite. I also did not expect to get to know such lovely people in my group that I would have never met under normal circumstances. All in all I can only recommend to anyone who wants to take up writing or wishes to expand their horizon to book a course with Write On! Thank you Amy!”

Anna Steiger, Immigrations Consultant

“Its as if the curtains have opened.
I am on centre stage and my writing river has been given a life, it is something I have always done, privately, under-cover, never to be revealed to another.

Now there’s no end to expressing myself on paper with my pen. I really love writing and now understand the value of being a dancer and actress, a writer a singer – its an acceptable way to give full expression to who I am.

Amy has a way of taking NO nonsense from anyone in a creative way. Overnight she exposed our potential and all the doubts and fears were
given no space in Write On! Thank you Amy. ”

Daphne Orkin – Physiotherapist

“I started attending the Write On classes having no idea what to expect other than what I heard from a friend, who said that it was fun and that it challenged him to think differently about his writing. To me, it was so much more. The skills and confidence that I’ve developed in my writing have spilled over to the rest of my life, enhancing my life in many different ways, such as improving the way I approach my painting and sculpture work. Write On doesn’t teach you the a-b-c of writing, it teaches you the 1-2-3 of telling your story and finding your voice in writing, giving you tools and encouraging the discipline and courage to face your fears and fight your inner critic.

Janet Bezuidenhout – Artist and Designer
