Greta Solomon – Writing trainer & self-expression coach
Greta Solomon is a writing trainer and self-expression coach for creatives, bloggers and business people. She is the author of the forthcoming book Heart, Soul & Sass: Write Your Way to a Fully-Expressed Life. And 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 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 health and travel writer, a published poet and songwriter, and a student of drama (The Poor School) and lyrics (Berklee College of Music).
Taking the lessons learned, she became an English tutor with a sold-out practice (and a long waiting list!) and a PR account director at SE10, an international 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! How to Develop Top-Class University Writing Skills (McGraw-Hill, 2013). Greta’s special sauce is inspiration. People most often leave her workshops hopeful, inspired, energised – and ready to write.
