Heather Shakespeare

Hello and welcome. I’m Heather Shakespeare, a writer and writing for wellbeing facilitator living at the heart of the Surrey Hills.

I’ve taught English and Creative Writing for many years but now, as a facilitator, I create spaces in which people can discover the power of writing to enhance wellbeing and promote self-development, both personally and professionally.

Alongside this, I write poetry for the pleasure (and pain) of it, and because sometimes it resonates with those who care to read or listen.

What’s writing really about? It’s about trying to take fuller possession of the reality of your life.

—Ted Hughes
