I‘m part of a terrific organization of writers based in the UK, Dark Angels. We’re from Scotland, Ireland, England, and the US. We train and tutor writers at workshops around Europe and the US. Dark Angels has changed many lives. The workshops described below begin with a Foundation level course to be followed by an Advanced workshop. I often tutor with my friend, the big-hearted, super-talented writer and musician, Jamie Jauncey.

THE AMERICAN COURSES
In the not too distant future, these workshops will take place on a stunning wooden yacht, the DeAnza III, moored in the heart of Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Over the course of the workshops, we’ll cruise out into Lake Washington.
For writers seeking a shot of inspiration. Which is every writer alive.
Expect packed, three-day programs of short writing exercises and discussions with time for personal writing. You’ll draw on your life experience, knowledge of the business world, and inspiration from being in a beautiful place with a rich literary tradition.
Who comes to Dark Angels workshops? It’s a mix of freelancers, and corporate people.
Recent US participants have come from Entertainment Arts, EY and Takeda among others. In the UK we’ve had people from Barclays, The BBC, British Airways, National Library of Wales, Penguin Books, Royal Society of Arts, Scottish Arts Council, Sotheby’s Europe, Swiss Reinsurance.
This is a chance to hone your writing and enrich your understanding
of the power of language and storytelling.
The role of imaginative language and the importance of stories and narrative writing to business writing are central to all Dark Angels courses. The work that happens on the Advanced workshops builds directly on work that has happened in the Foundation sessions.

It’s our belief that the more personally engaging you make your writing, the more effective it will be. We want you to come away saying that was fantastic fun but also that really worked. To book a spot, email Susanne Wakefield firstname.lastname@example.org
