Welcome to JourneyWords. I'm Christine - writer, poet, spinner, grower. I'm passionate about living creatively and about writing.
I host writing guided literary walks, creative writing workshops, writing retreats, and writing in the wild in a magical South Devon coastal valley that has a remarkable literary history.
I'm an active member of local and international writing groups, a member of Moor Poets and a contributing writer to anthologies.
In 2018, I co-founded Wednesday Writers with editor and writer's mentor Anne Rainbow, a monthly Artist's Date in South Devon offering structured workshops on all aspects of creative writing and editing. Wednesday Writers continues online with Anne and Kerry Hadley-Pryce.
I've hosted writing retreats like Slow Nature, Wild Words with Left Bank Writers Group; and Writers At The Watermill with Jo Parfitt/The Hague Writers Circle and with Anne Rainbow.
I've written creatively since I could hold a pen, am a lifelong journaller and love experimenting with form in poetry and prose, always drawing inspiration from the natural world around me.
Welcome to JourneyWords, enjoy exploring.
