Have questions? See below or email megan@meganchayes.com - I'd love to chinwag with you!

  • What is the time commitment of BLOOM? ⏰

    BLOOM needs just 2-3 hours per week and is entirely self-paced (there are no 'tests' and no need to ‘keep up’ - this is your journey, done your way). Each week you will get a welcome email setting out the activities, have a few short videos to watch, a weekly worksheet and time allocated for journalling. You can spend as little or as long as you want on this last bit, but it is where the most fun is to be had! 😄✏️

  • What is the live element of BLOOM? Are there synchronous sessions or Zoom calls? 💻

    The course is self-paced and NONE of the activities are synchronised (no Zooms or live sessions). You can fit all the pre-recorded sessions around your other commitments with ease. To make sure you get the most from the course, the only 'live' elements involved are that Megan will be on hand for Q&A in a dedicated forum for the full four weeks. PLUS, there will be a community scrapbook space to share and make friends (optional).

  • For how long will I have access to the sessions and materials? 📚

    You will have access to the course site for a year, but you are also welcome to download and save all the course materials, if you would like to (meaning you can have them forever!)

  • Do I need to be a pro-writer to take this course? Or to purchase any special bits and bobs? 🤔

    No and no! All you really need to take the course is a passion for/interest in writing (creative, reflective, journal writing - whatever!), a pen and something to write on. Megan will also suggest that you gather some creative supplies such as stickers, washi tape and/or coloured pens, but you can use what you already have if you would prefer not to buy new.

  • Is the course suitable for teens and young people?

    The course has not been designed for young people specifically, but (with some adult supervision) would likely be a fun, creative and practical course to entertain those aged 13+

The countdown is on...
