I didn’t know that learning Jack Grapes Method Writing would impact my 3 Principles experience too. I thought I was just learning to write better. When I learned the JGMW I learned how to get out of my head, how to recognise when I’m in a story, and how to let life flow through me. I use the JGMW concepts when I’m talking 3 Principles to show the effect of them on my life rather than trying to explain the impact of the Principles.

I never considered myself a writer. In fact, I had to force myself to ‘just write anyway’ because I wanted to tell the stories of the men in prison that my team and I work with. I wrote blogs and articles and I could see they were good enough, and I learned to enjoy writing, sometimes. I’d been keeping notes for an eventual ‘book’ but I could never see myself as an author. That all changed when I did Jules Swales Method Writing program.
There were so many changes that I could write for hours but I don’t want to bore you! I learned about different techniques. I learned about finding my voice. I learned about having an impact through images, so important. I learned about how to stretch my mind to way beyond what I thought I was capable of. But. Most of all I learned about me. I discovered a genius hidden in the depths of my mind that was joyful at coming out to play. Now I never have writer’s block. I never struggle. I never shy away from letting the genius find her voice and I learned how to stay out of her way. Jules is a wonderful teacher, patient and straight forward, she ‘tells it like it is’. She totally believes in you. She is a white witch, crafting her spells with you to create the most delicious concoction with a delicate balance of love and determination.
I’ve now completed two of Jules’ programs, just signed up for the 3rd and I’m knee-deep in that book I mentioned. I’m excited about the shape it’s taking and have found the joy and fun in writing.

Have you ever been humbled by the majesty of genius? The journey there is not for the faint of heart. You have to stand vulnerably in your own power and hear your own voice beyond the familiar, beyond the conditioned chatter, and beyond the love of your own story. You have to be willing to submit to a voice within that is much deeper than the one you are now in touch with, that familiar one whispering in your ear and speaking loudly through your ego.
If you want to discover and mine your own deep voice as a writer, artist or human and to be humbled by the majesty of your own genius then learn Method Writing. Jules Swales will lend her genius to help you experience yours.
Thank you, Jules. I love you reminding me of why I showed up to do this work. For me it wasn’t to learn to be a better writer, although what a gift that’s been. For me it’s always been about seeking out my voice, being startled by it, shocked by it at times, soothed, delighted, distressed, mesmerized at its range and just in awe that it’s alive within me. Learning how to paste my voice on the page with good writing, yep, that’s what I want to do. ♥️♦️♥️

“Oh, you’ve got to write a book!” I heard this all the time but when I tried to write it, within a few pages I was so bored with my own writing. I gave it up. I thought: “I’m just not a writer.” Then I stumbled into Method Writing. Through the practice of first learning how to “write like you talk,” then adding tools to discover my deep voice and create a scene, I started writing stories that drew people in, that touched them. Next, through practicing “the four voices” and continuing on to explore the other tools of Method Writing, I found my voice as a poet. I have now been published widely in literary journals in the US and elsewhere.

Julie Swales introduces Method Writing in a compelling and sophisticated way. Her depth of knowledge in the material is apparent which is used to push her students into their best work. She has a wonderful sense of humor, matched with her ability to stay on track and at times bring dry content to life. It was a delight to watch my own and the other students deepen and develop our writing voice over the 7 weeks and explore new ground together. Whether you are a seasoned writer or a novice I highly recommend this program.
