Acknowledgements: Helpful Friends, Groups and Organisations

June 23, 2012

Birthday Bouquet   To celebrate this blog’s 1st birthday, I would like to acknowledge all those who have helped me to grow as a writer and develop a freelance writing business.  This includes all the groups,  individuals and organisations who have employed me over the past 20 months (see Clients page) and those who have provided advice, guidance and support to help realise projects that I have been engaged to deliver (see Projects page).

A blog, like a book, does not come to fruition without the help of others and so I would like to extend my gratitude to all those who follow, like, comment and link to this blog from around the world.  I delight in discovering where my readers live and was surprised to find that someone in Mongolia viewed this site earlier today.

I would like to thank those writers and workshop participants who have recently thanked me for providing them with new opportunities through leading the Barnard Castle Winning Words Olympic poetry project.  I in turn am thoroughly enjoying meeting  and working with new people through the project, which has its own blog at

Whilst some of my work also includes teaching, I refer to myself as a Creative Writing Coach as I design sessions to encourage others to reach their own potential in both the written and spoken word.  I get a buzz out of seeing others achieve their writing goals and have been fortunate to secure a place on an accredited course with N.A.W.E. and The Arvon Foundation.

Attending this course at the Free Word Centre in London next week is part of my ‘time out’ over the next three months.  I have set aside this block of time to; plan and prepare new projects and courses, work with my editor on poems for my next publication, and put my house in order.

As ever, the final group of people who I need to thank are the family and friends who have supported me to become the person I am today.  One helpful friend is accommodating me in London and has even helped out with complimentary train tickets so that I can afford to complete the course.

I always write posts with the intention of inspiring readers to further their own writing.  Today I invite you to take time out to acknowledge all those helpful friends, groups and organisations whose names should be included on your own list of gratitude.

Thanks for reading!
