Work with Jan
Connection is everything–for our writing, for how we live creatively in such a challenging world, for the future of the world we witness to as writers.
For 2024 there are more exciting changes to how we can work together. This includes the Kith community pathway, a series of workshops spread through the year, plus a monthly newsletter with inspiration, prompts and provocations for your writing, a dedicated community forum (not on social media) to share your writing journey and a celebratory weekend festival of writing at the close of the year.
I also have a couple of places for mentoring in 2024. In addition to one-to-one intensive mentoring, this includes regular workshops with a group of serious writers, a monthly newsletter with inspiration, prompts and provocations for your writing, a community forum space to share the challenges and joys of writing and an online residential. Places are limited so that I can give attention to each person’s work. And you can read more about mentoring here.
Support Kith (at no cost)
The kith website is a labour of love. There are now hundreds of blogs aimed at inspiring writers and other creative folk to linger, listen and connect; to dive deeply into their artistic processes to become a different story. The blogs will always be free to access and there are also several free courses on the site to support writers.
If you regularly read and would like to help, I’m inviting people to help by telling others about the blog and asking them to sign up to the mailing list to receive a fortnightly newsletter. If everyone told five friends our connections would grow wonderfully 🙂
Follow my writing
I’m currently developing a new venture on Substack to support my writing by sharing insights into the process, excerpts and wonderings about the alchemical nature of words and more… There are free and paid subscriptions and I’d love you to follow me there.
