More on Steph
Stephanie Dale is a journalist by trade: 15+ years in newspapers; an author by design: 2 published books and a smattering of ebooks; a traveling writer by calling: never ignore the call!
Four years ago she drove west to the Australian outback on a hunch – that people on the other side of the Great Dividing Range would like a hand telling their stories.
After years of telling people’s stories for them, she figured folk in isolated areas might appreciate an opportunity to tell their own story, their way.
And they did. Steph was stunned by how many people long in their heart of hearts to write a book – just about everyone. And if not a book then a collection of memories. And if not a collection of memories then an important letter home. And just about everyone needs a hand to get started.
She called her project The Write Road and is currently in the process of making her courses and workshops available online (in no small measure so she doesn’t have to drive 10,000 kms every time she goes to work, however wonderful the commute!).
The Write Road is dedicated to brave new and unpublished writers. Because yes, it takes courage to step up and claim our longing to write.
People used to say Steph was brave walking through the Balkans and into the Middle East.
“Oh no,” she’d reply, ‘writing a book was much braver!”
It’s funny – and it’s true.
And now The Write Road has sprouted Walk & Write writing holidays, which is Steph’s way of sharing her love of walking and writing with others.
Join Steph, and your group of dedicated writing buddies, to roam the world’s great trails with a notebook and pen in your pack.
Walk & Write has partnered with UTracks (World Expeditions) to bring you these journeys. This means that your warm pilgrim bed is assured each night, and so is your trusty pilgrim transport.
It means the logistics are taken care of, leaving you and your writing buddies free to roam beautiful trails and wander through iconic towns and villages, taking in history, architecture, culture and cafes, devouring good food in great company. . .
. . . and writing along the way.
Walking and writing must be about the most productive pursuit available to a human being. We satisfy our physical body with gentle continuous movement, we engage our mind with productive pleasure, and we set our soul free to soar on the wings of our own choosing, day after glorious day.
It’s the wholeness of walking and writing holidays that has captivated Steph.
Come, join us.
