eastuition’s Creative Writing Coach, Sarah-Jane Page, is an experienced teacher and writer signed by DKW Literary Agency. You couldn’t be better represented.
Whether or not you have a book in you, there’ll be thousands of words inside just waiting to be written.
Getting in touch with our creativity has countless benefits, yet all too often life gets busy and we don’t give ourselves the time or space to indulge that essential part of us.
Ironically, the faster we hurtle around and the busier we get, the more we lose sense of ourselves; perhaps one reason why creative writing classes are now more popular than ever. The structured time and focus gives us permission to step off the treadmill, take a deep breath, and re-invest in our creativity.
But what can creative writing do for me?
The act of making fiction is a magical process. When we let our pens roam with our imaginations, we unleash what we didn’t know we had. We get a better understanding of ourselves and of others. We confront time and history. We gather experiences and explore meaning. As Flaubert suggests, ’the art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe’.
Why eastuition Creative Writing?
The teaching of Creative Writing happens in exploring the ‘writing’ and facilitating the ‘creative’, in small groups where voices can be heard – we never take on more than six writers for a Retreat Day and two for Bespoke Weekend Retreats.
eastuition shows you how to see creative writing from the inside out. By observing the techniques and devices of fiction, and by practising and sharing writing yourselves with innovative exercises, you learn to appreciate the art and craft of writing in ways you didn’t think possible.
We don’t teach formulae to make students better writers, instead we aim to make writers better students by encouraging originality, promoting difference, and pointing out pitfalls. With individual guidance and group sharing, you find the way in your own way.
I just wish I’d found eastuition from the very start of my writing journey.
I’ve attended various courses in the past to try and hone my writing skills, the latest before this one was ‘An Introduction to Fiction Writing’ with the Writers’ Centre Norwich. eastuition is in a different league!
The way Sarah-Jane combines her teaching skills with her writing knowledge is a magic combination, and I have learnt more in the last few weeks than I have in the last ten years. Even my grammar has improved. It’s really highlighted for me how important it is to find a teacher who can really teach.
Sarah-Jane is so passionate about writing, it’s contagious. I walk out of every session buzzing with motivation and bundles of confidence.
