Onwards and upwards!

happy planeOne more sleep and I’m flying out to the UK! YAY! and EEEK!

Claiming some long service leave after 22 years of motherhood, 26 years of teaching and 16 years of writing. Yes, it’s time to have a holiday!!

I’ll be visiting my UK publishers and checking out the new imprint of Thrill Seekers, stopping in at Moniack Mhor my favourite writers centre in the world, and facilitating a few workshops where I can.

I’m away for six weeks so if you want to keep up to date with where I am follow me on Facebook at edwinashawauthor

See you on the other side! Back in early December.

Any UK friends get in touch and maybe we can meet up in person 🙂 xx




Just back from Relax and Write 3. A fabulous time with an incredible group of women. Here’s a brief rundown of what went on.

Relax and Write 3 at Camp Koinonia in Evans Head finished up yesterday. Helena and I are always amazed by the wonderful women who come along and how quickly the magic of Koinonia and the sea and writing and yoga starts to make itself very evident.


Within twenty-four hours, or even less, secrets we swore we’d never tell are shared and held and then let go. Old wounds are uncovered and start to heal. We realise very quickly that all of us have stories that need to be told, alongside those we want to tell. But it is the kindness and upholding of each other which is most precious. With this sharing of secrets a deep bond is forged and we transform from the ordinary creatures we are in our everyday lives as teachers and accountants and mothers and business women and writers and workers into mermaids and scribes.
