Find out about Catching Lives homeless charity, operating in Canterbury, Kent. I have been volunteering with the charity since 2014 where I have been project co-ordinating and co-authoring the Harbledown book series with the clients.
Below are links to writing resources, groups and organisations that I have found helpful in my writing journey and I hope you do too.
Joanna Penn – www.thecreativepenn.com
Joanna’s work is incredible. She generously shares her knowledge of writing and the art of self-publishing. She has over 200 podcasts freely available from her website www.thecreativepenn.com, a multitude of blogs and many books. I am grateful for her expertise that speaks directly into my own writing career.
Michael Hyatt – www.michaelhyatt.com
Michael is an inspiring speaker, motivator, business leader and podcaster. I have benefited greatly from his wisdom and his podcasts are fascinating.
WhitWord – www.whitword.com
WhitWord is a very supportive local writing group with interesting speakers and the opportunity to link up with other writers. The group meets in Whitstable, in East Kent. I would thoroughly recommend joining a group like this (or this one if you live in Kent!)
Writers’ Yearbook – www.writersandartists.co.uk
Each year The Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook is released and it is a must for any aspiring author. There is a vast array of writing advice as well as many links to other organisations, agents and publishers. There are separate books available for adults and children’s writers.
Supporting other authors
I worked with Joan’s family to enable Joan to fulfil her dream. Her beautiful poetry and illustrations were published in her own book. In May 2016, Joan’s charming book “Ramblings of an Old Biddy” was released onto Amazon and has given enormous pleasure to her and her family!
I collaborated with my daughter to help her realise her dream of seeing her first book in print. It is a charming story of a bear’s search for his underwear, full of colour and engaging rhymes.
Check out the delightful book series by Tina Stubbs that support young children in their development and encourage good habits in an enjoyable way. Visit www.lifeslittlebugs.co.uk
