“Deborah’s Bootcamp class is like Yoga for your literal mind. Beginning writers will be encouraged to uncap the pen and seasoned writers will learn an arsenal of exercises to train their inner Flannery O’Connor. ”

Kimmett’s workshop broke through a year-long blank that I couldn’t seem to approach. I’d more or less given up on the whole writing idea, but thought it would be fun to visit the island and see what emerged. The island is a very special place, it’s true, but the workshop itself was the gentle magic I needed to allow myself to write again. I haven’t stopped!
Creativity in your writing, Humour in Your Writing., Workshops
For many years, I have attempted to write but always got stuck starting. Your class was amazing. The idea that I could just do it
and not worry about grammar or spelling was right on plus all the ideas to make the juices flow have started on a wonderful trip of memory and discovery. Thank you so much! I can’t wait for the next workshop.
Deb Kimmett may be best known as a comic and motivational speaker, but spend a day with her and you may suspect (as I do) that she was actually born to write. Her writing workshop, infused with humour and the wisdom of a lifetime of writing, is a treat for writers at any stage of the journey.
When I left your workshop my mind was swirling with ideas. Your reminder to continue to ask ‘What if?’ about every detail was a strong reminder to lose ingrained assumptions. The day was very stimulating and I can apply the same questioning to my work as a visual artist to enhance creativity.
Thanks for an awesome writing intensive! I walked away with a renewed commitment to staying connected to my voice on the page! I am less ashamed of seeing things with my ‘immigrant’s eye’ . Will appreciate if you could forward some new writing exercises for my continued development.
