Opening the Doors on the Studio Space

You might recall that I was talking a month or so back about my plans for the Studio Spacea virtual studio where you can experiment, test ideas, explore concepts, think out loud and banish fears in a safe and supportive environment.

Morning Light on the Clyde

Well, I’m delighted to say that I’m now ready to open the doors.

As this is a space for working in, making a mess, experimenting, and thinking out loud, it’s pretty much inevitable that it will evolve as it goes along, and in line with the way people choose to use it.  (Indeed, I hope that this will be one of its selling points!)

Feedback and help fixing any teething problems is going to be particularly important at the beginning, and with that in mind I’m offering the first month at 50% of the normal price ($10 rather than $20) for the first 10 members of the studio.

After the first month the price will be $20 a month for as long as you wish to remain a member.

As well as enjoying the discounted price for the first month, you’ll also get the chance to help shape and develop this space - a place that I very much hope will be a valuable resource for creative pioneers who are making, promoting or distributing their work on the web.

For more information on how the Studio Space will work and what’s included please do check out this introductory page.  If you’ve a question you’d like to ask or something you’d like to know more about, you can drop me a line either using the contact form on the site or emailing me at joanna [@] confidentwriting.com

Alternatively, if you know you’re ready to get going you can sign up with the subscribe button below.  (This will be followed up within 24 hours with an emailed invitation from me to join the Ning site where the studio is based.)


This is a new venture so it always feels just a wee bit scary to open the doors - but I have the feeling we can create something special with this space, and am really looking forward to seeing what happens now the doors are open…

    Congratulations! And my gratitude … Because I have decided to make this a part of my personal “space” and time investment. I am in the midst of change and your words consistently add a sparkly element of my recent {and parallel} thought collages! ;-)
