Creative Writing: (Re-) Discover your Creativity

Every writer has been in the situation where they feel stuck in their writing process – sometimes right at the beginning, sometimes after already spending hours on a project. The more stressed we become, the worse the situation will get. This Creative Writing online course will help you unlock your creative spark and addresses beginners as well as more experienced writers. Whether you do not know how to start your project or whether you battle with the feared writer’s block this course will (re-)connect you with the fun part of writing.

Each week you will get a bundle of personalised challenges and tasks. Some of them are just for you to have fun with, but each week I will also ask you to submit one piece of work. You will get in-depth feedback on your writing, especially focusing on the aspects we have discussed as the main goals you want to achieve.

The course is suitable for fiction and non-fiction writers.

Costs: 30 GBP per hour / 200 GBP for eight sessions (booked in advance)

Single sessions or 8-week course (with discount)
Assessment of problems and writing samples
Creative feedback

Weekend Retreats

To be creative it is sometimes neccessary to get away from our everyday life and usual surroundings. These weekend retreats are suitable for small groups of 4 to 8 people and will be individually designed to establish a creative atmosphere. Delving into crafts, art techniques, writing, RPGs and using relaxation techniques to calm the mind (Yoga, Meditation, Reflexology), participants will get the unique chance to discover and explore their creative potential and find their individual creative outlet. Facilitating the workshops Jessica Holzhausen works together with certified therapists and yoga teachers.
