We know that it’s hard to live and maintain a lifestyle as a writer, both financially and figuring out how to write alongside other responsibilities which take up your time. This issue is starting to be addressed through resources and courses dedicated to writing a book or a novel. But what about people who want to combine writing with other ways of living, for example, teaching, lecturing, editing or publishing?

Dare to Write?How do you develop a programme to support other writers? How do you make space for your own writing? And how do you develop a habit for writing?

The Dare to Write? Academy is a programme of classes aiming to support both writers and writer-facilitators. The academy draws from ideas explored in the Writer’s Cycle.

Our aim is to learn and draw from the Writer's Cycle, and use that learning to support researchers as writers.

We are currently planning the release of our own programme of events. These sessions will be freely available to all Bath Spa University staff and students. Keep checking this page for announcements.
