Jo Parfitt’s watchword is ‘Sharing what I know to help others to grow’ and that is certainly what she does on her renowned Writing Your Life Stories week at the Watermill. It is the perfect first step for any writer wanting to develop the skills and confidence necessary to move into writing memoir, non-fiction, articles or blogs.
The course is designed to help both enthusiastic beginners and more experienced writers. It will help you to produce your best work, to find your true writer’s ‘voice’ and to write authentically . Jo’s a compassionate, inspiring, and encouraging teacher.
Jo Parfitt is an author, journalist, teacher, blogger, conference speaker and poet. She has published 32 books herself, has helped more than 250 authors get into print and more than 2,000 people to begin writing.
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. Jo says: “The course at the watermill will provide a safe haven in which to unlock your creativity, write from your heart and hone your writing craft. You will be empowered to write in a compelling way, bringing your experiences to life.”
The workshop will include several methods and genres 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 calm and supportive environment, this course is for you. It is appropriate for students of any level.
Here are some comments from guests on Jo’s previous courses at the Watermill: “The most magical trip to Tuscany, which will stay with me forever!” “It is a very special and beautiful place, and everything was organised so perfectly. Jo is a great tutor and we all had an amazing time.”
“It was just wonderful. The attention to detail and beauty are a sure recipe for a wonderful stay. Jo is an inspirational teacher.”
We already have 11 people booked on Jo’s course, two of them non-writing partners, so we have one or two more writers (and their partners if they would like to join them). Now is the time to reserve your place capturing your life’s memories.
