The way they sound, the small differences in their meanings, the story of how meaning is constantly evolving. We love to put them into sentences and refine those sentences until they feel just right. We love putting sentences together to form paragraphs and organising those paragraphs into stories and poems.
We love writing for the way it helps us make sense of our world and introduces us to new ideas, how it allows us to pretend to be other people and express our fantasies.
At the Creative Word Shop we like to share this love through Workshops for Kids that help build their confidence in their writing while providing the scaffolding to develop their skills and imagination. Our point of difference is that our teachers are both published writers and passionate educators who know how to wrestle words onto the page.
Our Adult Workshops are designed to teach people writing craft and help those already engaged in writing projects to bring them to completion. Being published writers, we know how difficult yet rewarding this can be.
Works we have edited have been short-listed for the Miles Franklin Prize and Prime Ministers’ Awards. Our manuscript assessment services have been used by numerous writers.
We also provide ghost-writing and copywriting services. If you don’t love words as much as we do, we can help write your story or build valuable conversations with your clients.
