I’m lucky enough that I get to have wordsmithery as part of my day job too. Brey and I run Global Wordsmiths, a community interest company that provides an all-encompassing service for all writers, ranging from basic proofreading and cover design to development editing, typesetting, cover design, and eBook services. A major part of our work is charity and community focused, delivering writing projects to under-served and under-represented groups across Nottinghamshire, giving voice to the voiceless and visibility to the unseen.
One of the best things about this work are the annual international writing retreats Brey and I deliver in Spain. In 2020, we’re running a beginner week and an intermediate course close to Malaga in the Costa del Sol. The intermediate week sold out in just three days, but we still have places on our beginner week. Head over to our website for more details.
