Hello! I’m Susannah.

I’m a writer and teacher and I’ve been sharing my heart online since 2006. I’m the author of This I Know: Notes on Unraveling the Heart and my mission is to help people access their creative joy and nurture a deeper relationship with themselves.

Words have been at the centre of my world for as long as I can remember. I started writing a diary aged 11 and grew not only a life-long journaling practice but an unending curiosity about my place in the world. Walking through the fire of bereavement in my early 30s is how I came to truly inhabit every part of who I am, the shadows as well as the light. In 2006 I started writing a blog, unintentionally growing an audience around me as I reopened the door to my creative heart.

For the last 14 years I’ve been teaching creative courses online, sharing tools and practices to help others access their own creative joy. Alongside the teaching I weave words and images together to share my story in the hope you see a little of yourself reflected back. My inspiration is mined out of my own life as I navigate plot twists and report back from the (midlife!) trenches.

When we share our stories we feel less alone.

I’m so glad you’re here. ❤️

PS. If you enjoy my writing perhaps you’d consider becoming a paid subscriber? It gives you exclusive access to my podcast, Voice Notes from a Friend. New voice notes are released MONTHLY and include written transcriptions alongside the audios. The podcast is where I’m able to share much more intimately in a private space.

There are 3 subscription levels:

Free subscribers will still be able to read all my public blog posts

Paying subscribers (£5 a month or £50 for a year) will get access to Voice Notes from a Friend, my monthly private podcast, plus occasional private blog posts. You’ll be able to send in questions and topics you’d like me to muse on, and there’ll also be occasional private chat threads for deeper conversation.

Founding members (£125 for a year) will get all of the above plus a handwritten thank you note from me in the (snail!) mail ❤️ 🐌 ❤️
