Areas looked up will include how harness inspiration, carve out time, intensify productivity, build stamina and develop resilience. By clarifying your creativity goals and identifying habits that help and hinder, you’ll devise blueprints for commencing, continuing and completing creative projects to challenging yet achievable deadlines. Highly recommended for all those dreamers and procrastinators out there!

Launch of Emma Claire Sweeney and Emily Midorikawa's A Secret Sisterhood

Last week saw the launch of Emma Claire Sweeney and Emily Midorikawa's hotly anticipated book about female literary friendships, A Secret Sisterhood. Based on their hugely successful blog, Something Rhymed, A Secret Sisterhood delves deeper into four transformative female friendships which have been largely overlooked. Writing in the foreword, Margaret Atwood notes that 'In digging up the forgotten friendships chronicled in A Secret Sisterhood, Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney have done much service to literary history.’ We couldn't be more delighted for Emma and Emily and wish them every success with this important book.
