Write of Passage
Write of Passage – Spellcraft for Writers
There is a genius at the heart of brilliant writing that is deeper than technique, craft and all the ‘rules’ of good writing.

It is the secret of eloquence, structure, character and narrative voice, and what great writers mean when they talk about ‘flow’, ‘inspiration’ and the Muse behind their success.

In twenty years of professional writing, and ten working with, and interviewing, Masters at the novel, short story and creative fiction, Jade Richardson has discovered more about this ‘spellcraft’ than most writing teachers are able to offer. Her Write of Passage is unique in the world, designed to assist new and experienced writers transform their creative approach and access profound skills in storytelling.


Truly, this was one of the most life-altering experiences I’ve had: the epitome of transformation.

Ideal for those who have a call to write – a story that is begging to happen, but not quite on the page – and those developing novels, memoir, creative non-fiction and projects in journalism or blog, Write of Passage will connect you to the genius at the core of your idea, and leave you with specific skills to bring your work to life.

The workshop explores your motivation as a writer, blocks and blind spots, as well as the creative impulse that calls you to write.

We will discover where your story begins and ends, in which voice, and what symbols, archetypes and structure best support its telling.

We will reveal the living architecture of your story and practice ways to fire your inspiration, motivation, eloquence and enjoyment of the beatiful art of great writing.

The workshop is heavily focused on doing the writing, with classes heavily focused on creating new work, practicing skills, using your own writing and that of other great talents to intimately explore key skills. Your work will be privately critiqued by Jade during the course and we will use feedback as a group to stoke the creative fire.

All heartbookwriting classes are limited to a maximum of ten writers to ensure personal attention. ask@heartbookwriting for more information, and check the calendar for courses in your neck of the woods.
