Mothers Who Write

online and in-person courses coming soon

This is me and my big, silly, proud face on stage at the prestigious Hay Festival. I’m covered in my children and feeling happy and frazzled in equal measures as they helped me promote my latest book.

As a freelance writer, author, former doula and human rights in childbirth charity founder, I know that mothers have a huge amount to add to the writing world - whether we are writing about birth, pregnancy and motherhood or everything from poetry to face creams, conflict zones, astrophysics and beyond.

I also know that, whilst the career changes that motherhood often brings can provide new opportunities and inspiration to write, caring responsibilities, sleep deprivation, financial and emotional demands can also make it difficult to tap into our creativity and justify taking time to write.

So I’m planning a series of online and in-person courses for mothers who write, with a supportive Facebook group, a series of writing retreats and a chance to build a supportive community of mothers who write. Covering different topics to respond to the needs of both experienced and budding writers-who-happen-to-be-mothers, Mothers Who Write will be useful for current and would-be bloggers, authors, freelance journalists and those who simply want to dedicate a little time to nurturing their creative side.

To be the first to hear more sign up to my mailing list. And in the meantime check out my first Mothers Who Write Retreat.
