What’s different from other courses



NO “this works for me, so maybe it’ll work for you”.

PUT SIMPLY, Creativity came to you easily when you were 5. Then you went to school where you were taught to create, yes, but at the same time, to criticise yourself. Seems sensible, doesn’t it? But it’s not. That’s because in our brain there are two entirely different networks, that allow 2 different ways of thinking- (think of them as railway tracks) – thinking creatively, and judgmental thinking). You learned at school to try to use both networks at the same time, and your creativity suffered. Then you felt shame and self-conscious, and that  killed off your creativity completely. That isn’t MY theory. Science has endless evidence of how you were harmed, AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO FIX IT.

We teach you to access the 2 different ways of thinking, and to use them at different times- to create without judgement, and only afterwards, to consider your work, hone it, sculpt it into a shape that you’ll love, and so will other people. You’ll be amazed at the difference. And you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to learn.

After all,  it comes naturally to writers. To all artists.

So imagine what running away to our retreats can do for the rest of your life….
