Through my WORKSHOPS, COACHING PROGRAMMES and BOOKS, I give you the tools, techniques, support and guidance you need. Along with a good dose of courage, collaboration and care, we break through blocks, so that you can be the best writer you can be. Free, creatively fulfilled, and armed with a toolkit of writing techniques you can use for ANYTHING you write.
London-based, I deliver workshops and coaching in London (and the UK) and via Skype. I also travel internationally to speak and deliver workshops. My work has seen me travel to cities including Oslo, Bergen, Addis Ababa and Rotterdam. Check out my EVENTS page to see what I’m up to next.
Get started straight away by downloading a copy of THE JOY LIST: FIVE DAYS OF WRITING FOR JOY. Or, just have a good nosy around my site, and see if you find anything here that makes your heart sing. I believe that life works best when you find and express your true self. I also believe that it’s the little things that make life worth living. So, I hope you find some little pieces of inspiration here.
Greta Solomon is a writing trainer and self-expression coach for creatives, bloggers and business people. She is the author of the forthcoming book Heart, Soul & Sass: Write Your Way to a Fully-Expressed Life. And her mission is to help people to better express themselves in writing.
After graduating in psychology from Warwick University, Greta started out as a journalist at women’s magazines in London, in the early 2000s. She worked at top-selling weekly, Woman, and freelanced for Now!, My Weekly, Company and BBC Good Homes, among others. But although she was a successful journalist on the outside, she felt creatively blocked inside. So, Greta embarked on a journey of creative discovery. This saw her become a freelance health and travel writer, a published poet and songwriter, and a student of drama (The Poor School) and lyrics (Berklee College of Music).
Taking the lessons learned, she became an English tutor with a sold-out practice (and a long waiting list!) and a PR account director at SE10, an international business-to-business PR consultancy. She then became a writing coach, trainer and international speaker. Greta trains employees at both multi-billion pound companies and small start-ups, and has authored the book Just Write It! (McGraw-Hill, 2013). Greta’s special sauce is inspiration. People most often leave her workshops hopeful, inspired, energised – and ready to write.
These blog posts can help you to get to know me a little better.
The following seven facts will also give you a little flavour of who I am. And below that you’ll find some kind words from some people I’ve worked with.
I’m a Londoner, born and bred to parents from St Kitts & Nevis and Jamaica. Using a DNA test, I have discovered that my maternal ancestors were the Fang and Tikar people of Cameroon and Gabon. They were known for being highly musical, artistic and good at writing.
