3 Week Course
A new and improved version of Kitty's January 2024 in person workshop. An opportunity for people to learn from home who couldn't make the January event. Based on feedback from the first workshop, this 3 - week course allows for a little more time for each chapter, for reflection, writing exercises, discussion and group work / work in pairs.
Each session will be recorded and available to replay up to 1 week after the live session.
