Guest Info — Hannah de Keijzer

As a nonfiction editor and writing coach, Hannah helps folks turn bold ideas into compelling books and build sustainable, enlivening creative practices. Yes, she's totally a word nerd.

She's also a body nerd: she's been a professional dancer, choreographer, and dance teacher, and a nationally Board-Certified massage therapist. There are few things she loves more than watching someone light up in understanding from a new connection to their body. 

Show Notes

How often do you think about what your body’s doing while you write? Do you find yourself twisted up like a shrimp (prawn for brits) by the end of the day? Writing space not inspiring you to greatness? Then listen up because Hannah de Keijzer is an ex professional dancer and she is a magician when it comes to writing spaces that make you feel good, as well as boost creativity. Come and join us as we talk about shrimps and trolls, little touches that can make all the difference, and Cilantro Pig. Enjoy!
