Hi Everyone, and WELCOME to The Writing Fairy website. I'm Dorothea Helms, freelance writer, poet, book author, fiction dabbler, writing instructor, keynote speaker, humorist, wife, mother and slave to my English Bulldog, Margaret. My website is undergoing a facelift, boob lift, liposuction, weight loss program ... wait a minute - those are things I need personally. Sheesh. But my website IS in transition after being neglected for a LONG time. My goal is to inspire writers; my method humour (or humor in the U.S.). Enjoy!

Coaxing closet writers to emerge and make their magic known!

Starting April 2, 2013, I’ll be teaching a six-week course called “Outrageous Writing” at Blue Heron Books in Uxbridge, Ontario. This course is designed for writers who have enough self-confidence to try anything – and I mean ANYTHING – to inspire their creativity. I have some fun and wacky exercises and homework assignments prepared, and as usual, I intend for us to have a lot of fun in class. Find out more at www.blueheronbooks.ca.
