Greta Solomon

Writer - Greta Solomon

Greta Solomon is a writing trainer and self-expression coach for creatives, bloggers and business people. Her mission is to help people to better express themselves in writing.

After graduating in psychology from Warwick University, Greta started out as a journalist at women’s magazines in London, in the early 2000s. She worked at top-selling weekly, Woman, and has freelanced for Now!, My Weekly, Company and BBC Good Homes, among others. But although she was a successful journalist on the outside, she felt creatively blocked inside. So, Greta embarked on a journey of creative discovery. This saw her become a freelance travel writer, a published poet and songwriter, and a student of drama and lyrics.

Taking the lessons learned, she became an English tutor with a sold-out practice, and a director at a business-to-business PR consultancy. She then became a writing coach, trainer and international speaker. Greta trains employees at both multi-billion pound companies and small start-ups, and has authored the book Just Write It! (McGraw-Hill, 2013). Greta’s special sauce is inspiration. People most often leave her workshops hopeful, inspired, energised – and ready to write.

Greta will be leading a writing workshop designed to bring personality to your work. The session will draw on the principles of song writing and get you thinking about how you can draw your reader in.
