I’m running workshops and courses and I take bookings from groups and organisations nationwide. 


Words from a Distance

Live Online Creative Writing for Wellbeing course

Participants say my creative writing workshops offer them life enriching experiences that promote mental health, well-being and personal resilience:

“Writing with Judi and everyone else has been an absolute joy and I feel very lucky to have been part of such a supportive, nurturing group during such extraordinary times.”

“I was surprised to find how much more focused I was on the writing. Not what I expected at all.”

“Judi’s skill in holding the online space was every bit as good as I have experienced in her real life courses.”
