A Year of Wild Words
Four seasonal writing courses, each lasting a month, to ground your creativity in the turning year, and help you build a sustainable, daily creative habit.
The Wild Words courses are built on the philosophy that creativity should be organic, low pressure, plentiful, and joyful.
The courses are made up of daily writing prompts, delivered to you each morning for a month, and focused on finding inspiration in the world around us.
These prompts allow you to devote as much or as little time to your creativity each day as you would like.
Rewild your Writing
Each Wild Words course works independently: you can sign up for one, two, three, or all four.
Perhaps you struggle to feel creative through the winter months, and would like a creative boost in January. Perhaps you know that Spring and Summer are your most creative times of the year and want to capitalise on this, in which case the course can provide a gentle structure.
First and foremost, Wild Words will provide you with inspiration atuned to the changing seasons, and introduce an element of sustainable practice to help keep you writing through the year. Suitable for both beginners and experienced writers, Wild Words is for anyone who would like to live more creatively, write more, or make an authentic connection with the natural world.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MY COURSES
"The quality, depth and originality of the writing prompts has been extraordinary. Each one has been unique, inviting and thought-provoking. After writing each day, I felt immensely proud of having created something. It didn’t matter too much whether it was the best writing. What mattered was the feeling of agency, empowerment, expression and joy at having created something. Writing made me calmer, more present to my own life and, often, more observant and grateful for what was around me. You have been hugely generous in what you have created for us. Thank you."

Wild Words: Spring
Once more in the wood a cuckoo sings. Bracken unspools from its winter bed, and the hedges are ragged with new leaves. Green breathes from the whole of the hill, and with increasing speed the landscape is learning anew the language of living things. Anemones glow from the dusk-lit bank. Put on your crown of apple blossom and dance away the dew.
Join us in April for a month of creative prompts in celebration of spring!
