Welcome to JourneyWords: a place for writers.

I'm Christine.  I'm passionate about living creatively and about writing. I host writing workshops, writing retreats, and guided literary walks with writing in the wild in a magical South Devon coastal valley with a remarkable literary history.

Two new workshops to share - join me on Tuesday September 28 2021 and/or Tuesday 12 October 2021 for a magical, gentle afternoon of creative writing in The Italian Garden, a secret walled haven under restoration.  It's between Totnes and Newton Abbot in S. Devon.  Just 8 places and you're welcome whether you're new to writing or more practised.  Click for more information and how to book.

From 2018 to lockdown, I co-founded and co-hosted 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.

I've hosted weekend writing retreats, like Slow Nature, Wild Words with Left Bank Writers Group, and several Writers At The Watermill weekends, with Jo Parfitt/The Hague Writers Circle and with Anne Rainbow.  I'm an active member of local writing groups, and a contributing writer to anthologies.

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. A writer, grower, spinner, and poet.

Welcome to JourneyWords, enjoy exploring.
