Writing Voice

‘Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul.’ – Meg Rosoft, ‘On Writing’, from the Mslexia 2013 Diary (a very useful purchase, by the way).

The mothers’ writing workshop I facilitated on 10th January was a great example of this concept – of writing being not about being clever, but, as Natalie Goldberg puts it, ‘close to our first thoughts’, to our ‘wild mind’ – the unconditioned, free mind. I was moved by the richness, close observation and feeling that characterised the writing I heard. I love holding this space and look forward to more!
