I am Kerstin Pilz, PhD.

Writer, teacher, world traveler, yogini, meditator and photography enthusiast.

I believe we are the authors of our lives. We are in charge of the stories we tell ourselves.

When I got lost in the dark woods of grief, creative writing made me find my way out.

I am so glad that you’ve found me!

I am here to help you discover the power of your own voice and to guide you towards your own creative inner magic.

I offer you what I know about the healing power of writing and I share with you what I’ve learned about the craft of writing and storytelling, about words, meaning and language, in 20 years as University lecturer.

The Healing Power of Writing

TEDxTownsville, October 2020

It’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. But also one I am most proud of.

I told my story of how I discovered the healing power of writing by going through the fires of grief in 15-minutes to a global audience.

My knees were trembling as I stood there in that red circle, blinded by a bright white light. But my voice was loud and clear.

Only the truly brave dare to be vulnerable.

Saying those words on stage felt empowering. I was speaking my own truth.

I believe that we are the authors of our lives. Vulnerability is the way to a deeper relationship with ourselves and with others.

Watch my TED talk and find out why I think we can all benefit from the healing power of writing and from the joy of creative self-expression.
