Hello there. I'm Rowena Roberts, creator of Words Inspire. I'm a creative writing coach based in the UK, helping people who love to write to connect more deeply with themselves in order to write from their heart, discovering more about what they truly want to create and communicate to the world.
For 18 years I worked as a copywriter, writing words for other people and organisations. But when it came to my own writing, faced with the blank page, all too often the same question came to my mind: "What do I REALLY want to write?" Without an answer, that page threatened to stay blank for years, maybe even for the rest of my life. Yet I also knew the truth deep within me: I wanted to be a writer.
So, I started to dig deeper into myself: to learn more about who I was, what I wanted, and how I operated in the world. To understand my own nature - our human nature, what connects us, inspires us. To notice how I, we, perceive the world around us: what our senses tell us; what meaning we assign to the objects and events in our lives; how we flavour our own experience of existence through our thoughts, emotions, habits, beliefs.
As I dug, I started to connect some other dots. I discovered the link between intuition and inspiration. I discovered patterns of perception and growth that influence the stories we tell. I discovered the value of play for opening us up and taking us far beyond our fears.
And I re-discovered our very real need for connection and support in all our endeavours, which gives us confidence and inspiration that fuels our creativity, helps it to breathe and manifest with greater depth, beauty and authenticity in the world.
The end result was this: Words Inspire Writers Circle. A place for people who love writing to connect, share, learn and grow. And, of course, write.
This circle will grow in step with its membership, discovering and offering what you need in order to progress as a creative writer.
A monthly 60-minute Zoom call gives you an opportunity to share and connect with other members, as well as try out writing exercises designed to help you jump into your creative flow and see what's ready to come out.
The online group itself is a judgement-free space for us to share questions, resources, ideas, inspiration, support and, of course, writing.
Further resources will include regular interviews/ Q&As/ offers from various industry experts on topics from authorship to publishing - and possibly related subjects of interest, such as illustration, intuition, etc.
Circle members are by invitation only. I (virtually) meet and speak to everyone before they join, to make sure that what you want and what I offer here is a good fit - and to maintain the circle as a place of truth, trust and consent, where members can feel free to express themselves without fear of attack, pressure, or concerns about their privacy.
All members receive a 10% discount on other services offered by Words Inspire, including creative writing courses and one-to-one sessions.
Finally, a referral scheme is in place, meaning that if you refer someone who becomes a member of the circle, their first month of membership is free - and you also get a month of membership for free.
Thank you so much for joining me here.
Your contributions will help to make this a fertile circle of creativity, where we can all find inspiration, support and confidence to spread our writerly wings and fly further than we've ever been before, to see what we're really capable of creating.
