Truthful Type explores the revolutionary act of telling your own stories. Sign up for my newsletter to get invitations to free Truthful Type workshops, writing prompts and resources for creative non-fiction writers.

Each Truthful Type workshop I present material or prompts related to creative non-fiction. These workshops are free but each session I will share a link to a cause or group that could use your support, so please pay it forward if you can!

Looking to spark and deepen your writing?

Get your free invitation to the Truthful Type creative non-fiction workshop. Workshops take place on the last Monday of each month.

I began these workshops during the pandemic to help support community and creativity, both in myself and others. I offer these workshops for free because I believe in the power of telling your story, and that creative encouragement and community should be available to everyone.
Please honour the spirit behind Truthful Type by paying it forward if you can. Each week I share a few links of groups who can use your support, but how & where you pay it forward is entirely up to you!


You can support the Truthful Type project through Patreon. Patrons get access to the Truthful Tuesdays resource library & more.
