Kylie Castor is a writer, editor and workshop facilitator. Her background is in marketing, communications and events, where she worked for organisations such as GE and the New York Institute of Finance. She has also freelanced as a consultant to small businesses in Sydney.
Kylie moved to Coffs Harbour in late 2014 and started her business, The Triple Sifted Word Refinery, offering copywriting and editing services, and writing workshops. In 2015 Kylie took on the role of Publicist for the Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival, where she wrote their newsletter and developed their social media strategy in the lead up to the festival. She was recently contracted by the Coffs Coast Writers Centre to write and deliver the highly successful community workshop, ‘How to Write a Great Newsletter.’
She is currently running ‘Introduction to Journal Writing’ workshops up and down the coast, to teach the joys and benefits of creative journal writing, and is developing a series of journal writing programs to be rolled out during 2016 including:
- Journal Writing for Creativity
- Journal Writing for Mental Wellbeing
- Journal Writing for Intuition & Manifestation
- Journal Writing for Self-Knowledge & Direction
- Journal Writing to Explore Ancestral Patterns
Kylie is the host of the One Good Thing Storytelling Circle. Participants have an opportunity to share the good things happening in their lives, and learn surprising new skills to make their lives even better with a new guest speaker at each monthly event.
She is also a shamanic healer who uses the power of story to bring positive change to people’s lives. She’s currently hard at play on her first novel that explores Celtic myth and legend, and her own ancestral roots. You can see examples of her writing here.
