Coaching the writer within

This specialised coaching course guides writers on a deep personal journey into their writing, blocks, past experiences, and future hopes.

This seven-month coaching course is all about unlocking your full creative potential as a writer.

On this course, you get to connect with a personal coach - a real person who understands something of what you are experiencing as a writer, and who can give you validation, a sense of companionship, and a friendly challenge to open up more of your capabilities.

In between dealing with writing blocks, we'll get into some other really tasty topics such as:
-How to recognise your artistic calling and use it to power your writing.
-How the mythic hero's journey applies to you as an artist.
-How you can harness masculine and feminine energies to manifest your creation.
-How you can access the inspiration zone and unleash the powers of your subconscious mind.
-How to create inspiring writing goals that come from your heart and are aligned with your highest potential.

Tutor for this course: Russel Brownlee is a writer and life coach based in Cape Town, South Africa. He started out in journalism, but soon started following his dream of writing a novel.

After completing a creative writing Master's degree, his first novel - Garden of the Plagues - was published and went on to win South Africa's Olive Schreiner Award for debut fiction, and was shortlisted for the country's premier writing prize, the Sunday Times Literary Awards.

Russel's course brings together the two themes of writing and personal transformation in a way that supports and encourages people in meeting the challenges that go with the creative life.
