Clover Stroud Creative Writing Courses
Clover Stroud Teaching: Memoir
Clover Stroud Creative Writing Retreats

Have you got a story inside that you want to tell? Do you dream of writing a memoir? Or do you want to live a more rewarding creative life?  Do you have an urge to connect more absolutely to who you really are?


Join Clover on one of her very special, immersive one-day memoir and emotional crafting masterclasses, where she will guide you through a process of creative exploration, from which you will leave with a much deeper understanding of how to communicate your unique story.


Drawing on her 25 years’ experience as a journalist, confessional writer and Sunday Times best-selling memoirist, Clover provides a safe space to help you dig deep into your inner world, while showing you how to shed the shame and blame that can be such a fierce block to creativity.

Her retreats are suitable for absolutely everyone: you do not have to be an experienced writer, or even to have ever written anything before. All you need is a desire to tell your story or delve deeper into your emotional life. If you have a more substantial body of writing work or even a first draft under your belt, the course will also help you hone and sharpen your voice, structure and style.


Clover's last three memoirs have all been Sunday Times bestsellers, so if your goal is to get published, she can also offer advice on developing a book proposal and approaching an agent or publisher. The days include group discussion, teaching and writing exercises.

Whether you have the grain of an idea you want to develop, a finished manuscript, or simply want to learn more about how to use your emotions and creativity to live a brighter, bolder life, Clover will guide you through a full day of writing and sharing, in which new creative connections and firm friendships will be forged. You will leave inspired, with a stronger sense of the possibilities of your vision.

"Clover’s course completely changed the way I approach my writing and think about my creativity. It was the most amazing experience, and I learned so much."
