Mindful Writing Sessions: Space for your writing practice
17-04-2019 - 10-07-2019
Stillpoint Spaces London
23 Clerkenwell Close
London, EC1R 0AA
Join us for a new iteration of our deep work sessions for writers series, led by former attendee Sebastian Kola-Bankole.
In today’s over-distracted world, creating the time for deep work can be difficult. We know that “the book (or email or poem or article) won’t write itself” but often find it difficult to find the discipline to create uninterrupted mindfully present writing time.
These writing sessions are inspired by Cal Newport's book Deep Work which suggests how we can better focus on our creative ideas in a distracted world.
The rules are simple: mobile devices are left outside - laptops are allowed, but wifi must be turned off. After a brief welcoming, we will quietly write, simply supported by others quietly writing around us.
These are not traditional writing workshop where your work will be shared. Rather, the sessions offer the space for quiet, mindful, uninterrupted writing amongst colleagues who share the same aim.
A parallel group also runs on Fridays (2-5pm) and is facilitated by mindfulness practitioner Paul Christelis. These work sessions are free to members of Stillpoint Spaces London.

Non members: £18.50 a session, or a package of all sessions for £150.
Membership of this group is limited to 8, so please book early.
Sebastian Kola-Bankole attended our first series of Mindful Deep Work for Writers in the Autumn of 2018. Inspired by the amount of creative work he was able to get done, Sebastian has been invited to run his own parallel group by Stillpoint Spaces London, to allow more people to access these safe, relaxing and successful sessions away from external distractions. This is the second round of sessions facilitated by Sebastian.
The workshop will take place weekly on Wednesdays, from 3-6pm.
17th & 24th April
8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th May
5th, 12th, & 19th June
This workshop is ideal for those who wish to commit to all 10 sessions.
