The path from start to finish is rarely a smooth, straight line. It's full of bumps, tangles, starts and stops, bouts of inspiration, and loads of failure. 

At Creative Pathworks, we understand that success is neither simple nor easy.  With each stumble, we grow our craft and learn about ourselves. It's not about how often you stumble, it's about how you pick yourself up. 

Our writing and creativity workshops are designed to help smooth out that messy path and help you along your journey to success. 

We mean to take risks.
