Creativity as a light in the darkness for processing troubling personal experiences is a prominent driving force for American-born Christina, both in her own writing and in the many inspiring poetry workshops she leads and groups she facilitates. In self exploration, strength can be found. The very heart of her work can be expressed in three simple words: write to empower.

However, all kinds of creativity with words, from the sublime to the ridiculous, stories, monologues, experiments of the most surreal kind and more are experienced by Christina with the delighted smile of someone truly thankful for her own creativity and desire to draw the very best out everyone who wishes to pick up a pen (and also those who have never even considered doing so yet).

Whether as a writer, event organiser, performer, tutor, workshop facilitator or simply as a reader or listener, Christina Thatcher seeks to engage with people and creativity on all levels and her sheer enthusiasm for embracing all aspects of light and dark in creativity makes others feel brave enough to believe they could follow her example!
