How creativity and connection carried me through grief

I'm no stranger to the power of creativity, especially when it comes to writing. But in the last year, my world was rocked with a family death and I felt like I was drowning in grief.

I've experienced the power writing has to reconnect with Self, to explore thoughts and emotions, and to experience the power of my words. I love to create opportunities for other people to experience it…

Women Who Write Books

I've always loved reading books and dreamed of being an author. After I published my first few books, I realised how much I wanted to connect with other writers. At that time, I was the only person I knew who was doing what I was doing, and I longed to have people to talk about writing with. I decided to create an event where authors and writers could come together. My event was called So, You Want to Write A Book? and while I could have had a starring role in it, really I just hosted it and enjoyed the vibes. https://www.facebook.com/AnnikaSpalding/photos/a.1082925228439685/1082926151772926…
