I’m Katie, creative writer, scribbler and workshop tutor/facilitator
I am a skilled Arts Project Manager with over 15 years experience in managing events, performances and projects across Leicester and Leicestershire. In 2013 I refocused my career to concentrate on my passion for writing and set up Write Mindful.
I deliver creative writing workshops, writing for well-being, writing for relaxation & writing for mindfulness sessions as well as delivering community writing projects. Ongoing work includes, a monthly Writing for Mindfulness group and for the fourth year running I’ve delivered workshops for the Everybody’s Reading Festival every Autumn in Leicester. I’m currently working on Air Raid Shelter Stories a Heritage Lottery Funded Project based in Leicester.
My WIP is a series of children’s books for 5-7 year olds and submitting away to agents (fingers crossed please!) I also scribble short stories & submit to competitions – having had one published locally in Leicester as part of an anthology for KLIC – 10 stories 10 writers. I am a keen participant in the Leicester writing scene, attending events and courses when I can. I have currently undertaken an “Introduction to Therapeutic and Reflective Writing” course with the Professional Writing Academy.
When i’m not scribbling in my journal you can find me reading or procrastinating on facebook. I’m also a proud mum of one beautiful & bonkers 7 year old girl .
