• IMAGINATION

    If yours is locked away
    We help you release it, and use it!

Fiction workshop

with Arabella McIntyre-Brown
English writer

WHAT?

About the Fiction workshop

In a single day, you will:

  • liberate your imagination
  • invent a dozen new characters
  • find brilliant settings
  • discover story lines and subplots for a string of novels or screenplays

It’s already in your head, but it’s all locked up, waiting to be released.

WHY?

About your imagination

We can’t live without imagination. It creates wild inventions, dreams, philosophies; but it is also our tool for planning, at home, at work, at play – before we take the next step, we imagine it. Therefore, this workshop:

  • boosts your professional life
  • helps you think lateral and find solutions faster
  • unifies teams and strengthens human connections
  • makes you find out new things about yourself
  • helps you make connections easier
  • helps you improve your communication with other employees and clients
  • empowers your self-confidence
  • it is the first step in public speaking (you expose your ideas, thoughts and beliefs)

Imagination is the key to innovation. It’s the light and space where we find the best ideas.

HOW?

What do you need?

Bring your head, some paper and a pen (or your laptop), and end the day with more ideas than you can handle.

*The Fiction workshop will be in English, but there will be Romanian speakers to help if needed. You can write in Romanian or any language you prefer, as long as you can share your writing in English.

    I was impressed by Arabella’s professional approach to book publishing and it was at a book launch organised by Arabella that I finally decided that I must write a book myself. Some months later I had written ‘T-Shirts and Suits: A Guide to the Business of Creativity’. Thanks for the inspiration Arabella!

    Arabella is amazing. As a journalist she has always been at the leading edge of business reporting with incisive questions and a very enquiring mind. As a writer and publisher, she is extremely creative and so energetic. On top of all of this, she is a passionate foodie, a pleasure to be with and so professional.

    It has been my pleasure to do business with Arabella over a number of years – and from a print perspective in general, this can be quite rare! She could brief well and never altered specifications once agreed.
    All in all – an all round good egg!
    Thank you, Arabella.
