Meditate & Write

Blending meditation and writing gives you a powerful tool to brainstorm, get unstuck, or help you move forward in many more ways than you can imagine.
In this intimate workshop, I give you clear instructions so you can let go, exhale and make yourself at home while your pen does all the work.
This workshop is hosted by Zoku & The story Lounge.

Business Storytelling

Storytelling in business is a hot topic. But what is storytelling? What’s the difference between a formal text and a story? And most importantly: how do you engage the people reading it?
This two-hour workshop is packed with creative assignments and insightful group discussions, introducing you to storytelling and showing you how to apply it to your business.

Introduction Workshop

Do you want to write stories, a blog, poems or lyrics, but you don’t know where to start?
With easy exercises and plenty of writing, you will be sure to end up with a full notebook and new ideas. I create a friendly and safe environment in small groups of like-minded souls to carefully try out your first stories. Keep an eye out here for the next one in February 2023.

Travel Writing

When I travelled through Peru, I taught travel writing workshops in the hostels I stayed in. These were such a success I decided to continue doing them after my return to Holland, and I carry on giving one wherever my travel bug takes me.
I now organise this workshop together with the amazing Zoku.

In 2 hours, you’ll learn how to stand out from the crowd with your travel pieces and make a lasting impact on the people reading them. Lots of writing exercises and laughs are guaranteed.
All levels welcome! Keep an eye out here for the next one in February 2023.

I didn't know what to expect, whether I would feel uncomfortable or under pressure. However, Talia made the environment super friendly to make us feel at ease and comfortable in our writing. The exercises used were super helpful, fun and useful. I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to develop their skills, be more creative or just try something new.

Where are the workshops?

The Bite-size workshops are held at the amazing Zoku, A long-stay hotel and hub that serves as a bar, restaurant, and a great place to hang out. We use their inspiring ‘Bored Rooms’ for our creative endeavours. Zoku is located on Weesperstraat 105 in Amsterdam.

How big are the groups?

I take only 4 to 6 students per workshop to keep it comfortable and cosy. This means my workshops fill up fast, so don’t wait too long to claim your creative spot.

Are the workshops in English?

Yes, they are, but you can write in any language you want.
Helaas geef ik zelf geen les in het Nederlands omdat ik hier simpelweg niet genoeg aanmeldingen voor krijg. Wel ken ik goede schrijfdocenten en breng ik je graag met hen in contact. Ook kun je hier kijken voor schrijfcursussen in het hele land.

What do I need to bring?

All you need is a pen/pencil and a notebook.

Can I do a workshop on a specific date?

If you know at least four other interested people, you can contact me, and we can arrange it.

If you are not sure which workshop suits you best,
simply contact me and we will figure it out together.
