We offer a selection of four open programmes, and the opportunity to create bespoke programmes which are delivered in-house.

Our programmes range from one-day workshops to a three-day residential. At the core of all our programmes is the belief that words, and using them to create simple, compelling stories, helps us and our audiences understand things better.

Through our programmes, we explore:

  • Transferable practices to bring back into your day-to-day work
  • How to use your voice to deliver important messages through your writing and communication
  • How to distil what you need to say without losing the essence of your message
  • Connections to peer groups and the opportunity to build networks across the sector

What do they say?

“ …exceeded all our expectations, not only have we learned about good writing, we’ve also learned much more about each other.”
Reader in Health Economics, University of Glasgow


“There did seem to be a sort of magic at work, some alchemy of people, place and language.”
Senior Lecturer, Falmouth University

Our Programme Commitment

We commit to creating an inspirational and reflective experience on all our programmes. That’s why we use a combination of group work and dedicated one-to-one time to build confidence in using your voice, and to ensure a high degree of personal attention to your needs.

We will always have two facilitators, and commit to working in small groups to maximise the impact for you. And finally, we will choose inspiring locations to stimulate writing that really connects.

In return, all that we ask is for you to commit to your writing journey and come with an open mind.
