Would you like to add a spark of magic to your writing?

Words Away invites you to join Andrew Wille, book doctor and writing teacher, on a workshop at the London Bridge Hive.

In this day-long workshop, we’ll use the four elements to free our intuition and bring depth, texture, and balance to our work. Memories, fairy tales, poetry, and the news: we’ll read, write, talk and listen, summoning up powers that will energise our writing:




  • Fire - to give your voice strength and purpose
  • Water – to evoke the right feeling
  • Earth – to embody all the senses in action and detail
  • Air – to bring focus and structure to your stories

For beginners in search of inspiration as well as experienced writers looking for fresh perspectives.
