Essential connection, strong medicine, & sanctuary for your writing
Sunday, June 4th – 1-4pm
Jumpstart or reboot your writing in a supportive circle of women! Discover and generate new material. Expect intriguing prompts, several short and long writing periods, and the opportunity to read your work aloud and receive helpful, inspiring feedback.
There are a lot of reasons to explore writing—for the love of it, to express ourselves, to better understand our lives and the world, to explore our questions, to share our stories as part of our legacy, to publish and thereby connect with readers, to learn, remember, and play!
Write Like a River workshops create a supportive, affirming space in which to write. Is there a consistently negative critic of you and your writing, a critic who lives in your head? Take a moment to think about that voice, or it might be a composite of negative voices you’ve heard over the years—parent, teacher, boss, editor, ex, competitor, rejection slip, you name it. That harsh critic will be sent away on a long vacation so you can rediscover your voice and renew your relationship with writing.
