Helen Redfern is creating Seasonal & Creative Essays

patrons


Welcome to my patreon page where I aim to explore creativity, confidence and writing through the seasons and my own experiences.

Every month you will receive an essay written by me that'll hopefully inspire, entertain and give you an insight into the life of a writer and a blogger. 

In the past couple of years I’ve built up my current blog, grown an Instagram account to over 17,000 followers, taught myself how to photograph and edit flatlays and created seasonal films for YouTube and IGTV. I’ve written and sold an e-course helping people similar to me how to tell and share their stories in this online world and appeared in magazines such as Stella and Blogosphere.

Yet for a decade prior to this I was incredibly timid online.

I now want to create a series of essays over the course of the year where I explore my creative world and how it has been, and still is, influenced by the seasons. I want to dig into the past six years of being a chicken-keeper and seasonal lover and discover why this has had such an impact on my writing, both on and offline, and creative confidence.

How come I used to be scared of putting a photograph of myself on my blog but now I’m quite happy chatting to camera on IGTV? Is it the confidence I’ve gained from discovering new skills out in the field and garden? Or from posting a photograph every day on Instagram? Or is it something to do with my own personal season? I am in my early forties, after all, and feel like I’m finally shrugging off the shackles of limited creative confidence.

Over the course of these essays I intend to find out some answers. 

I’m Helen Redfern and I’m a writer. I write the blog A Bookish Baker and curate an Instagram feed with the same name where I share my seasonal and creative stories.

My ultimate aim is to turn these seasonal essays into a wonderful book. Packed full of essays and seasonal recipes.  Each time I hit one of my mini-goals I'm part way towards the funding required to get there...
