We are incredibly moved by people’s response to Devotion and the generosity of feelings and words that they contribute and that make Devotion the safe and generative space that it is.
Hear about Devotion from those who make it....
'When we write together and read together, it feels congregational, it feels like a ritual necessary in the world right now. Sophie and Rose seem to tap into something elemental and free something in us all.'
‘On the last day of Devotion I actually wrote a page length poem that was an actual poem. and it didn't totally suck it actually sounds like my voice, i touched the chords of my own song and even tho its a groggy 7am song its still the sound of it and that experience was like the most crazy insane breakthrough and i cried a lot and have been writing almost everyday since.’
‘I have attended all three Devotions so far & every time has been incredible. The mix of poetry, music, film & art as inspiration makes it so stimulating & like a little party for the heart - because that's what Devotion seems to access, subtle connections to feeling.
Sophie and Rosie are so emotionally aware that they, by just being who they are, select prompts & inspirations that have some invisible universal nuance that unlocks something within all attendees. Even when I struggle to produce anything I consider 'good', I am still producing, & from a place that I wouldn't otherwise.
Devotion has become a must in my life now & I would probably cancel most other things to be there because it does something that nothing else has ever done for me in my writing & has changed me in other more spiritual senses too. The space is nurturing & allows for everybody to be who they need to be on any given day & the pricing structure means I can attend without worry which is amazing <3’
