    Oh and did we say it’s FREE?

    Because it is. All freeeee.

    What’s the catch? Eh. No catch. We’re shit at capitalism. We believe everyone should have access to stories. And obviously we’re also hoping you love it so much you upgrade to the full shebang. But ya know, no pressure 🤷‍♀️.


    “Thank you so much for this course. It’s made me feel so much better about myself, and not just my (non) writing. I’ve been able to commit to the times I set for myself every day, which is a big thing for me. I can see myself applying the ‘just practising’ mantra in writing & other areas of my life too. 🙂”
