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 ran a beginner week in Cornwall and our intermediate retreat is going to be online during the next lockdown.
