S1 Ep5 Winter words to soothe the soul


Lose yourself in a flurry of wintery words from some of my favourite writers across food writing, nature writing, fiction, creativity, poetry and more. These are words to soothe the soul. There's also a special seasonal writing exercise for you, and we look into the tradition of the Christmas pudding.

Episode 5 includes:

  • The benefits of reading inspiring words, and writing your own, in the dark season
  • Snippets of some wonderful writing from words that make you notice more to words that celebrate the human spirit
  • A writing prompt for you to try
  • Exploring the origins of the Christmas pudding
  • This week’s ‘Get ahead tips’
