Oh I do love to write beside the seaside!

Local writer, Alex Christopher, is urging us to unleash the author within!  But instead of being locked up inside, she is harnessing the power of a beachfront setting and letting the ocean view ignite our creativity when putting pen to paper.

Alex has created a series of Seaside Writing sessions and the next round is due to start in mid February.  Here she tells us more…


Join us for writing sessions by the water in Townsville – starting from 14 February 2018.

These sessions have become a beautiful community of writers and thinkers, drinking up the gorgeous Strand and pouring our their thoughts on the page and in conversation. We’d love for you to join us – business owners and everyday folk!

Write an Amazon Short Read, create an inspiring opt-in for your business, smash out weekly blog posts, or knock over whole chapters in your manuscript. Or just write from wherever your mind and the sea breeze takes you.

Over 2017, I personally fillled eight notebooks of heaty scribble!

The best and most effective ways to reach your business, life and writing goals are to invest in yourself and seek accountability with a supportive group.

Achieving a writing project for your business or for yourself requires a “practice” mentality. It takes having a clear goal in mind, dedication, a set time in your schedule, and it takes the right environment.

Have you ever tried to write but the words just don’t come? There’s a blockage for some reason – either you’re not clear what you’re saying, or you’re not sure of the best way to start. Or maybe the words don’t come because you’re not in the right head space or physical place.

There’s something about being by the water. It’s calming, it’s centering, invigorating; and it’s there in that zone you can find an unparalleled clarity. For me, by the water is where writing can flow.

So I created this 6-week program for people in business (and anyone else who wants to come along) to write by the water in beautiful Townsville. Our city’s waterfront truly glistens and we’re lucky to have gorgeous views across to Magnetic Island. But how often do we sit and absorb this scenery!?

Every Wednesday and Friday morning, and Thursday afternoon, you can join me in writing towards a certain project. Perhaps you’d like to focus on a series of blog posts, perhaps a few pages on your website, or even a manuscript may be something you’ve been wanting to tackle? Poetry perhaps? You never know.

You can use this time to get the words going. We can write in our own headspace but in a motivating group atmosphere and I will be there to offer support, editing assistance and anything else you require to get your writing project off the ground (and published.)

If you don’t have a project in mind, you can simply come along and write whatever is on your heart. I have many writing prompts I can share with you too.

Imagine this; you’re sipping some nourishing chai tea overlooking the bluest of blue waters, breathing in that uplifting sea air and all the while achieving your writing goals.


The program is just $88.00 for six sessions, which includes refreshments. Casual attendance is $20 per session on the day. Want to commit to 12 sessions in the six weeks? It’s just $11 more at $99.00

Would be wonderful to share the seaside with you.
