I’m really excited to be opening places for Kith 2024.
I’ve got spaces for both mentoring and the community pathway and both are great ways to inspire, enliven and nourish your writing in 2024.
Mentoring includes everything in the kith commmunity programme below, plus an online residential and intensive one to one feedback on your manuscript in progress. If you have questions about mentoring or would like to sign up for 2024 please use the form on the mentoring page.
We will start Kith 2024 in early March and the theme of the writing year will be embodying the seasons. From the flow of summer to the pull towards hibernation as we work deeply in winter, we’ll be looking at the cycles of writing and how they co-incide with the seasons outside, but also how they may appear in your work at other times of the year.
Included in the year of writing support will be:
1. Quarterly online workshops where we will share prompts and inspiration for the writing year, digging deeply into our processes
2. Monthly writing prompts to follow up the workshops and keep us exploring the stories we want to write and the stories we want to become
3. A closing weekend festival of writing that will include workshops, guest readings and readings from the members of the community. This will also include the option to invite freinds and family to attend the readings.
4. A whizzy new forum space that includes
- live chat (with anyone online at the same time as you or leave someone a message to connect)
- a feed where you can post new work, share your responses to the monthly prompts, ask questions, and post reflections on writing, book recomendations, news of publications … all things writing life related
- the feed will also have the prompts posted there so they are easier to find and respond to and to cut down on the number of newsletters you’ll receive
- a resources area to link to the website page with recordings of workshops and admin documents for the year
- space to post events so you’ll have a timetable of workshops in one place
The community space will cost £280 to join (or €320 or $340). There will also be options to spread the cost over 10 monthly payments from February to November 2024. (I have a couple of half price bursaries and a couple of free places so please get in touch if this would make the difference to being able to join).
You can read the terms and conditions in the big print
If you’d like to be contacted to join the community when payments open, or if you have any questions, please use the form below.
