About Freefall and Barbara
Barbara Turner-Vesselago’s “Freefall Writing ™” has helped hundreds of writers to publish fiction, memoir, non-fiction and poetry worldwide. Her book on Freefall, Writing Without a Parachute: The Art of Freefall is available in Australia from Finch Publishing. For those familiar with the Freefall practice, Freefall into Fiction, Finding Form is available from the UK’s Jessica Kingsley Publishers or www.bookdepository.com.
By means of five simple precepts, she leads the writer step by step into developing real trust in writing through the art of Freefall.
1. Write what comes up for you.
2. Don’t change anything.
3. Give all the sensuous detail.
4. Go where the energy is, or go fearward.
5. Observe “The Ten-Year Rule”.
Ultimately, Barbara helps you connect with your deepest intention in writing, and to write with authority and grace.

Asked in an interview why she teaches Freefall, Barbara responded, ‘I teach this way of writing because it works. And it’s the only way I’ve ever come across that really does. Freefall is a method some writers discover spontaneously, but many have to (re)learn: the technique of writing from the larger Self, beyond reach of the ego and its censors.’
As the name suggests, Freefall invokes the courage to fall without a parachute, into the words as they come, into the thoughts before they have fully formed in the mind, into the unplanned structures that take shape, without prompting, to contain them.
