Bonus Episode: Manda’s Basic Tips for Writers
Thrutopia is open to everyone who tells stories in whatever form. But if you’re in the early stages of your writing journey and want some support, these are Manda’s Ten Key Pointers to writing well: a basic Writing Apprenticeship in an hour!
We we need Thrutopias
Imagine a future where our great grandchildren look back and say, ‘Yes, it was hard. Yes, they made mistakes. Yes, they left it way, way too late, but that was because they didn’t know what to do. And my goodness, when they had the visions, they threw themselves into making them happen. And we’re here now, living lives we love, because they took the risk to change the way things worked.’
Thrutopia: changing the world through stories
We live on stories. We thrive on visions of futures we want – or terrify ourselves with those we definitely don’t. But when it comes to our own near-term future, we don’t have the stories that tell us how we got it right. So we need to write them – Urgently! Come and join us on a unique 6 month Masterclass, writing our way to the futures we want and need.
