S-Z of the Savvy Writer's Alphabet from Jo Parfitt, the Bookcook.
15-22 June 2019
How to write your life story in a delightful setting in the heart of rural Tuscany — brilliant teaching and exquisite Italy all wrapped up in one fantastic week!
You will be in a beautiful historic watermill, set beside a river in a gentle valley, with stylish bedrooms in elegant buildings around the sunlit courtyard. You’ll take leisurely breakfasts and mouth-watering evening meals in the Watermill's new courtyard dining room (and also dine out in nearby restaurants to sample traditional dishes and local wines). The gardens, secluded millstream paths and riverside walks are all yours to enjoy.
The Write Your Life Stories creative writing course is designed to help you produce your best work, to find your true writer's 'voice' and to write authentically. Among other things, you’ll discover the secret of SPICE, the seven steps to writing life stories, and put this into practice right away.
Writers will be invited, but not obliged, to share their work during class and to receive feedback. It is the group feedback that ensures everyone grows as a writer and increases in confidence.
The class will include several methods and genre and is perfect for anyone wanting to write about their own lives for an effective journal, memoir or blog.
If you would enjoy an injection of inspiration in a safe and supportive environment this course is for you. It is appropriate for students of any level.
Take your writing to another level by taking an intensive mentoring program. Jo Parfitt's 12-month program will help you brainstorm, plan, create and perfect your book from scratch.
What a joy it is to work with Jo on my second book! Why do I work with her? Because she intuitively sees into my heart, mind and soul. And with that insight, she draws from me the book that’s bubbling inside. She uses a magic mix of nurturing and caring with a clarity and discipline… that demands nothing but the very best from me.That’s what brilliant mentoring and coaching does. It’s rather like being sprinkled with fairy dust.
