WRITING AS SELF CARE
Give me 4 weeks and I will teach you how to to be empowered through writing
Writing as Self-Care:
An upcoming course for people who want to learn how to write ad create a daily habit for self-care
But what does self-care mean if you come from an underprivileged background and don’t have the time or the money? How do you take care of yourself?
I have helped many clients all over the world rekindle the love they used to have for writing. I devised unique, tailor-made strategies for them to learn how to write about themselves and people sharing similar identities.
Did you use to write as a child and then gave up because you never had the time?
Are you someone who wants to know how to write?
Are you stressed, overworked and don’t know how to take time for yourself? To relax?
Any of these sound familiar?
You’re not alone in this.
It’s easy to feel vulnerable and lost when you want to write and don’t know how to start. Or when you’re feeling down, exhausted and that you know you have to take time for yourself. But you simply don’t know how.
Learning how to write and learning how to do self-care are not mutually exclusive.
And that’s why I created this course.
Whether you want to go back to writing, learn how to take care and treat yourself, my upcoming course Writing as Self-Care helps you to:
•To learn the magic of storytelling
•To improve your mental health by writing about yourself
•To find the joy in writing
•To build your confidence
My course is here to help you live a more relaxed life, have more confidence in yourself, and feel empowered through writing.
Because you deserve it.
You don’t need to attend my workshops to learn
You will learn how to create and keep a writing diary, learn how to heal with writing, learn how to find time for yourself every day, learn how to write regularly.
No time to take a course? You’ll love it!
The course has been created for busy people who barely have time to take care of themselves because life gets in the way. You won’t need to take another course and you don’t need to pay a monthly membership that will be a waste of time. The course is flexible. You can finish it whenever you can. Absolutely no time limit!

“I was amazed at how quickly and effectively Aude got us writing fluently and effectively. I was initially sure I would have nothing to say but the thoughtful and supportive atmosphere she created inspired me to think, imagine and communicate. In just a short while I had thought out and expressed clearly ideas that had lain half-formed and buried. ”
participant at the Amnesty International East Anglia conference
“Aude’s workshop was a great opportunity for us to dedicate some time to writing and considering stories. Some interesting discussions came out about how each of us defined ‘queer stories’, and it was great to use those discussions and Aude’s guidance to influence our writing decisions.
Client Account Manager, Stonewall Uk
Aude Konan facilitated a LGBT+ history month themed writing workshop for us. Aude is a brilliant facilitator. They listened to our groups needs and tailored a workshop about writing queer stories to engage our attendees. Our group thoroughly enjoyed thinking about character and story development. Many of our group attendees hadn’t done much creative writing, but Aude created a calm and non judgemental environment for us to express ourselves. Thank you Aude, and we hope you’ll facilitate something for us again very soon!

Why is Writing as self-care different from other writing courses?
Most writing courses out there don’t focus on people who are not cis, straight, men.
This course will teach you how writing has been a powerful instrument for minorities for years, how taking care of yourself as someone from a misrepresented background is an act of resistance, allow you to tell your own stories and exist in the world. And yes, with this course you’ll learn how to write even with a busy life!
You can do it on your own time, any time.
What’s possible with Writing As Self Care?
Writing as self-care has been created for people who want to learn how to write, especially women of color and/or LGBTQ+.
Anyone who doesn’t have the time to sit through hundreds of writing courses and books and wants to know how being able to express themselves the pain of not knowing how to take care of themselves
Is Writing as self-care for you?
What you will get from this first time offered course:
I created Writing as self-care after years of teaching clients all over the world how to write and finally get the representation they have been longing for. I have worked with people from marginalized communities, people of color and/or LGBTQ+ and/or disabled who had difficulties writing about themselves and for themselves because they didn’t have a reflection in this world.
My workshops are unique and insightful and give my clients, sometimes for the first time in their life, the tools and time to create stories and characters that look like them.
However, one thing exasperated me: not being able to help more people who were facing creative blocks, didn’t know how to take care of themselves during difficult times and most importantly don’t know how to write creatively.
My approach is straight-forward and authentic: I understand my clients and their cultural background in order to provide the best courses. We can write about anything and my method shows you that. So I gathered all the workshops I did over the years and gathered them in one place: Writing as Self-Care, an affordable and exclusive course for you.
With my years of experience as a writing teacher and coach and the proven results overnight for my clients, I am the best person to help you and teach you how writing as self-care is what you need now.
