How to succeed as a conscious & creative writer



.Dear %$firstname$%

‘I love the magic and mystery of the creative process; how the invisible realms give rise to a multitude of visible forms – words, pictures, sounds and more.’

These are the first words of my latest article which tells the story of the way in which creative awakening has become my latest creative offering as an example of how you can follow the lead of your creative unfolding.

In a few short months creative awakening - where the journey of self-discovery meets authentic self-expression in all areas of life - has turned into:

I’m especially delighted to be offering creative awakening as an option for the Mentoring Series alongside my on-going commitment to conscious writing as my core teaching. Read more here.

I hope you’ll consider this broader focus as an opportunity for guidance on your journey of self-discovery and authentic self-expression, and I’d love to know your reaction to the idea generally (send me an email here).

In the meantime...

... the Conscious Writing Scholarship will be offered later in the year (July application: September start) which of course comes after our annual Retreat (10-13 June) which is almost sold out at the Early Bird price!

I'm also delighted to share that my good friend Publisher Linda Joy just released the 10th Anniversary Issue of Aspire Magazine and my article on Creativity: A Path to Freedom and Fulfilment in Your Business and Your Life is included! See here.

You might also like to check out my latest radio interview for the delightful Marianne Pestana and a couple of one day workshops in the Dates for Your Diary section, so there’s plenty on offer to support you with your creative unfolding during 2016.

Personal Visioning + Creative Retreat

Next week I'm off for some mid-winter recharging and after that I'm taking some additional time out for a personal visioning and creative retreat to develop my new ideas in more detail!

So I'll look forward to catching up with you again early March, and while I'm away from my desk, my wonderful assistant Justine will be on hand to schedule time for us to have a quick chat about the mentoring options if that offering appeals to you at this time.

To your conscious & creative success!

PS A very warm welcome to new readers this month! For a regular flow of conscious & creative inspiration, please join me and your fellow Conscious Writers on Facebook via the IACCW page here, my author page here and follow me on Twitter here.

Six Months of Individual Mentoring

* Starting APRIL 2016 *


Julia McCutchen
Intuitive mentor, Hay House author and IACCW founder

Just 6 places available!

Application deadline:

This year I’m delighted to offer individual mentoring for my core teaching of conscious writing AND my new offering of creative awakening where the journey of self-discovery meets authentic self-expression in all areas of life.

.I first came to see Julia for a 2-hour Breakthrough Coaching Session at a time when I was struggling to transition from academic writing to more creative work, and I’ve continued to work with her ever since.

During that time, Julia has been instrumental in helping me find my writer’s voice and discover what I am truly here to write. 

Working with Julia has been transformative, and her unique approach to creativity and writing beats any creative writing course I’ve ever attended. 

Not only is Julia a highly skilled mentor with expert knowledge of the world of professional writing and publishing; she’s also amazingly intuitive and has a natural talent for helping people connect with their creativity. 

I can safely say that working with Julia has transformed my writing as well as my life! Jenny Engström Baron, blogger, writer and activist www.bornwhole.wordpress.com

Feature Article

How to Follow the Lead of Creative Unfolding

.I love the magic and mystery of the creative process; how the invisible realms give rise to a multitude of visible forms – words, pictures, sounds and more.

These often arrive as delightful surprises which surpass all notions of original plans yet frequently reflect a facet of the essential energy we’re drawn to explore through our chosen means of self-expression.

A conscious approach to creativity leads to a rich spring of inspiration that wells up inside us and flows through the twists and turns of our inner landscape to take shape in the outer world.

Yet clues and pointers relating to our creative journey also come from external triggers which reflect back to our conscious awareness different ways of seeing what may be right in front of us, waiting to be noticed.
