Immersion 21

Are you beginning a new creative project, stuck in the middle of an old one, or ready to wake up to your own creative curiosity? Whether you’re an experienced writer, or just starting out, maybe it’s time to allow yourself to be immersed.

Immersion 21 is a six-week program designed to wake you up, re-ignite your curiosity, remind you of your courage, and forge your commitment.

Make 2021 your year of immersion.

The next Immersion 21 program will begin on 22 February 2021.

Here’s how it works:

For six weeks you’ll meet online every Monday at 12.30pm Sydney time, with a small group of fellow writers. In that dynamic ninety minutes, Kathryn Heyman will guide you through reflections, strategies and techniques carefully designed to get you immersed in your creative project.

With structured guidance, you’ll set your intention for the week ahead and check in with the community of writers. Every single day, for six weeks, you’ll receive a unique writing prompt sent to your inbox, along with inspirational tips, proven strategies and approaches. On Fridays, you’ll email your questions that have come up during the week, and we’ll address them during our Monday intention session.

The Immersion program is ideal when you're ready to dive in to a new project and aren't quite sure how to begin, or when you're simply a bit stuck. The daily prompts that you receive each day in your inbox will give you focus to generating new material. This isn't a retreat, but a program designed to work around your life. You'll need to allow time for your ninety minute meeting on Mondays, and around half an hour each day for your writing and thinking time. If you have an hour, brilliant! But half an hour a day will be enough - we promise! - to get you immersed in your creative process.

Places are strictly limited to 10 and are offered on a first-come basis.  Full payment of $725 AUD + GST will secure your place in the program.
