Welcome to JourneyWords: a place for writers.

I'm Christine.  I'm passionate about living creatively and about writing. I host Wednesday Writers with experienced editor and writer's mentor Anne Rainbow, a monthly Artist's Date in at Hope Cove in South Devon offering structured workshops on all aspects of creative writing and editing.
