The Reviews From Chip Off The Old Writers Block Workshops

Posted by & filed under funny, talks, fathers.

Deb’s workshop was a big gift I gave to myself. From the moment she picked us all up from the ferry docks, I was treated to a full day of self-expression, creativity, and the sheer joy one gets from honestly sharing with like-minded people who just want to expand. It was like a mani-pedi for the mind. You’ll love it! Linda Kash, actress and writer“

 

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. Linda Williams, sculptress

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.” Maureen McDonald Gauld


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. Shirley Miller, watercolour artist

Deborah 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! Rachel Atlas, French teacher
