What’s new this month?

February 16, 2017

Hi Conscious Writers!

What a delightful time we all had in the New Year: New Creative You! FREE live video class recently which one participant described as ‘yoga for the creative soul’ – lovely!

If you missed it and would like to experience this powerful new teaching medium, the next one will be at the end of March.

I’m also planning a brand new 4 week online course starting in April; all dates and details will be released early next month.

In the meantime, here’s the heads up on two consciously created Highlight offerings for you to review right now:

1. Early Bird tickets for the CONSCIOUS WRITING RETREAT(23-26 June) are now available!

This retreat truly is a highlight of the year for me, and from the feedback I receive, for those who attend as well.

I’ve honestly not come across anything quite like this transformative creative experience anywhere else so do please check it out to see if it resonates with you – read more here.

2. New Six Month MENTORING Series starts in March.

This is your invitation to explore the possibility of working with me individually.

Mentoring seems to be in my DNA! Looking back it’s clear that I’ve been a natural mentor almost all my adult life.

So if you feel like you might benefit from my intuitive insight and the clarity that seems to pour through me, read more here.

Loving the Blog!

I’m also inspired to share with you just how much I’m loving writing the Conscious Writing for Creative Living blog!

I’ve chosen one of the posts to include as this month’s feature article.

It tells the story of one of the key questions that came to me for all Conscious Writers to reflect on as it’s like a Zen Koan for the creative soul!

Comments Request

I hope you enjoy reading it and the other posts I’ve done recently. If so, I’d really appreciate it if you’d take just a few moments to leave a comment on the blog itself.

It’s wonderful to receive positive feedback from people by email but comments at the end of each post remain available for others to benefit from so are much better over the long term.

Signing Off till March

With that said, I’m signing off now for a major creative business review followed by some sunny time out in Costa Rica so I’ll look forward to catching up with you when I surface in early March.

Just so you know, while I’m away my PA is booking FREE Discovery Sessions to discuss the new Mentoring series so simply email and she’ll take care of you.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Who Are You Before the Writing Begins?

All of a sudden, as if from nowhere, an idea or phrase arrives fully formed in my awareness; it’s like receiving a ready-made piece of a creative jigsaw. The complete picture is often revealed at a later date yet I’ve learned to pay attention and capture these fragments straight away.

An example is the question, who are you before the writing begins?

It came to me in the early days of developing my ideas for Conscious Writing and remains one of the key questions for self-enquiry that lead you to discover your authentic voice as a Conscious Writer.

Your Authentic Voice

The usual definitions of what your authentic voice is have always left me feeling short-changed as they seem limited and incomplete, certainly where Conscious Writing is concerned.

IACCW Member Event: Do You Need a Literary Agent?

January 26, 2017

Julia McCutchen interviews Susan Mears
on 2nd FebruarySusanMears_cropped_250

Over the last few years, the world of publishing has changed dramatically. A whole range of publishing solutions are now available for writers who feel inspired to share their ideas, insights and stories with the world at large.

Empowering though this may be for aspiring authors and those who are already working on their second or third books; it’s also a double-edge sword as it raises important questions about what the best route to market actually is. It also requires informed decisions to be made about which professionals to work with.

In this interview, experienced literary agent Susan Mears will bring you up-to-date with the latest developments in publishing and explain:

  • How to decide on self-publishing or traditional publishing for your book(s)
  • What level of marketing is right for you whichever publishing option you choose
  • If you need a literary agent and what the benefits are from working with one
  • How to find and approach an agent professionally and with confidence
  • How the market is evolving and what to focus on to succeed as an author today

Susan Mears trained in publishing at Random House and worked as a Senior Editor in three other publishers before founding the Susan Mears Literary Agency in 1993. Since then she has worked internationally representing her authors to the major publishing houses and also to her extensive contacts in the fields of film and television. Her main base is in London but she also maintains a presence in Dubai and New York. Her agency has a tremendous reputation for discovering new talent and has taken a number of authors from start up author to international bestseller status. For more information visit

What’s new this month?

January 11, 2017

JM_headshot(1)_Nov2016_500Hi Conscious Writers, Happy New Year!

I know that January is not considered to be the start of the New Year for everyone.

However, as I wrote in this month’s feature article, I love the energy of new beginnings and consciously choose to take every opportunity to immerse myself in the inspiring energy of the alpha source out of which everything arises.

So it becomes my reality; and I ride the wave of new possibilities and fresh perspectives.

New Year: New Creative You! FREE Live Video Class

With the launch of my new blog and website last month, there’s a lot of new energy around at the moment and I’ve harnessed some of it to create the first in a series of bi-monthly FREE Live Video Classes.

I’ve only recently started using this format of live teaching by video for the Conscious Writing Live Online Course which took place a few months ago (and will be repeated this September).

And I was delightfully surprised by just how much I loved teaching this way and how well it worked for all the participants!

The forthcoming New Year: New Creative You! class will call forth the real creative you and guide you to craft an achievable vision and set clear intentions for authentic creative expression in all areas of your life. Read more here.

Looking Ahead

However brilliantly the online format works, especially as a way to dissolve geographical boundaries and open up the teaching for wherever you are in the world, there’s nothing quite like a live, in-person experience.

One of the year’s highlights is the four day Conscious Writing Retreat which is taking place in the sacred landscape of Glastonbury from FRIDAY 23 – MONDAY 26 JUNE 2017.

The Early Bird booking will be opening soon and as places are limited you can register for advance notification by clicking here.

Finally, whatever feelings you have about this particular New Year, my wish for you is that 2017 becomes your most conscious, joyful and abundantly creative year yet!

Conscious Writing for Creative Living: launching my new blog + website

December 9, 2016


Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

This moment in time marks the start of a whole new era. It’s a significant quantum leap as I step up to a brand new phase in my business and my life.

It feels both exciting and challenging yet I’m truly delighted to share that today I’m launching the Conscious Writing for Creative Living blog and a whole new Julia McCutchen website!

To check it out
click here

Seventeen years ago a life changing accident led me to move on from my career in publishing and start afresh by forging my own path even though I wasn’t sure what that would be.

Twelve years ago I wrote and published my first book The Writer’s Journey and launched the first Julia McCutchen website to present my teaching and mentoring offerings.

Seven years ago I launched the International Association of Conscious & Creative Writers (IACCW) to provide inspiration, guidance and community for writers to discover and express their authentic voice.

Four years ago I created Conscious Writing as a fresh approach to deep and vibrant writing as well as a path of creative self-realization; Hay House published the book last year.

Today I commit to a new level of sharing the message I feel I’m here to share at this time.

Discovering your authentic voice and unlocking your creativity
transforms your life as you wake up to realize your true nature,
express your deepest calling in the world, and
live consciously and creatively in alignment with your soul.

I’m really looking forward to writing regularly for the blog and connecting with you directly to answer your questions and inspire you to take your next creative steps joyfully and with confidence.

I’ll share my deepest insights and inspirations on Conscious Writing and Creative Living, internal alignment, spiritual awakening and accessing your intuitive inner wisdom to navigate major transitions in your life.

To read my first few posts and subscribe

I’d like to thank you from my heart for sharing this unfolding journey with me. I’m here to inspire, guide and support your unfolding conscious & creative journey so none of it would be possible without you.

Here’s to a new era of soul-inspired alignment and authentic communication for us all!


PS I really hope you’ll join me on the unfolding adventure of the Conscious Writing for Creative Living blog. Check it out by clicking here and I’ll look forward to seeing you there!

What’s new this month?

November 9, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious Writers!

Endings and beginnings; my life is full of them! As one process, phase or project draws to a close, the next one opens and new life is breathed into different forms.

Often these overlap in a multi-layered spiral of conscious in-breaths and creative out-breaths that give shape to the essence I devote my life to.

With the first Conscious Writing LIVE Online Course successfully completed 10 days ago as ‘mission accomplished’ for us all, the first Conscious Writing Coaching Group is already formed and ready to begin next week.

Alpha and Omega Transitions

Many of these alpha and omega transitions are hugely significant and early next month I’m looking forward to sharing the details of one of the most momentous shifts in a very long time.

Naturally it includes exciting new developments and offerings that will be directly relevant to you as a conscious and creative writer, so watch this space and all will soon be revealed!

Conscious Writing in French

In the meantime, the fruits of existing projects continue to flourish and I’m delighted to say that I’ve recently received copies of the French edition of my book Conscious Writing.

It is thoroughly delightful to witness this body of work rippling out to the world and seeing my words in another language is amazing!

I’ve posted a few photos to my Facebook page if you’d like to see it and I can’t wait for the Chinese edition to arrive; yes, the rights have been sold to other languages too including Chinese!

Conscious Journaling

One of the core practices I use to remain present, aligned and crystal clear about what’s truly important in the midst of all the change and transformation is journal writing.

It has served me so well over the years, including the last few months, that I’ve been inspired to remind you of the immense value that Conscious Journaling has for your writing and your life. Read the article here.

Finally, we have an inspiring event coming up this Thursday 10 November when I’ll be interviewing internationally renowned transformative coach and best-selling author Michael Neill.

We’re honoured to have him speak for the IACCW audience so if you’ve been wondering whether to become a FREE or FULL Member, now is the perfect moment to so so and receive access to the live call and audio recording.

Wherever you are in the world, I wish you a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Conscious Journaling to Clear Your Mind, Open Your Heart and Unlock Your Creativity

November 8, 2016

journal-431912_640I’ve written a journal on and off for many years and have always felt the benefit of doing so. It complements the ‘project writing’ I do beautifully and periodically I’m reminded of just how much I appreciate having this superb tool in my creative treasury!

Journal writing has supported me in so many ways to navigate the waves of transformation as I release what no longer fits my current reality and make the transition into the next phase of my life and my work.

Right now, I’m inspired to remind you that a conscious and creative approach to journaling, what I call Yin-Style or Conscious Journaling, is an extremely valuable practice that is well worth making a priority in your life. In fact it’s one of the five core practices of Conscious Writing. Here’s why, and how… (more…)
