The Headway Project

For those having trouble getting to the work they want to do on a writing project:


James and Sue are both certified and experienced in leading workshops in the AWA Method, a way of holding workshop space that promotes creativity and craft while keeping writers safe from too-early editorial interference.

Coming up later in Fall/Winter (2023-24):

The Creativity Cure with Sue – writing and other forms of creativity as a tool for wellness

For poets, James will be offering a workshop on How to Create and Publish Your Own Poetry Chapbook early in 2024.

For Novelists and Memoirists, he will be presenting his annual 8 week intensive workshop: Navigate the Publishing Marketplace with Confidence.

Finally, both Sue & James work one on one with writers. They can provide a substantive edit for an existing manuscript or provide ongoing mentorship/coaching/editing for a book project or writing development.
