About Sarah Salway’s Everyday Words

As a writer, I’m predisposed to like words. In fact, I’m so passionate about words that in 2019 I gave a TEDxRoyalTunbridgeWells talk about them, In Praise of Everyday Words! This newsletter is an extension of that talk and will celebrate and study words and the role they play in our lives whilst helping you to create a sustainable writing practice of your own.

Public Monthly Post

The monthly edition of Everyday Words will be available to everyone and will include:

  • Reading suggestions

  • A short writing prompt

  • A poem – either one of mine or someone else’s by permission or out of copyright

  • My own writing news – books, events etc

  • Five things to help you fill the well – these may be reviews, courses, articles, or websites that will educate and/or inspire

Bonus Posts Twice a Month

The twice monthly bonus edition of the newsletter will be available to paid subscribers and will include:

  • Diary from the writing desk – practical nuts and bolts/behind the scenes

  • Diary from the reading chair – exploring idea of ‘positive reading’ for writing with links

  • A journal writing prompt

  • Something to do, eg an artists date/activity (cheeky because this is part of a book idea I’d love to work on so I can start to compile them!)

Additionally, once every two months I’ll send a seasonal or otherwise timely two hour writing workshop to do either at home or with a group including readings and exercises.
