I am so excited about this giveaway! Amy Spencer is the wildly talented and creative force behind the blog, Bring Yourself and the author of The Crafter Culture Handbook and DIY: The Rise of Lo-Fi Culture. Her first novel, London Clay, is due to be published in 2011.
Amy is also an experienced workshop leader and crafter, and she's teaching an e-course called the Handmade Writer.
Here's a little sneak peak at the course: "The Handmade Writer e-course will help you gather together material from every source imaginable. You will learn about the craft of writing and how to sew these fragments together to build your own pieces of creative writing. This e-course has been inspired by the strength of craft communities as well as the impulse to transform everyday finds into something amazing."
The best part? She's giving away a spot to one of you.
This is a chance for you to make the leap, claim creative space for yourself in your life and take your writing a bit more seriously (even if you don't think of yourself writer!)
Read the whole course description here. It begins Monday 12th April 2010
