+What:

This is an intensive writing workshop with me as your guide/midwife along with an intimate group of other writers. We come together to refine and improve craft, explore voice, and accomplish writing goals.  Over a 6 month period you set goals and will be held accountable to them. I offer my professional guidance in my personal style of intuitive space holding. You'll be coached and midwifed through the entire process.

 You will form connecions + relationships with other incredible writers. Because we need each other. As writers, we are here to lift each other up.  

You will be celebrated and honored for comitting to this practice, this form of art.  You will be held to devotion to write.

This mastermind is for writers to step into the process of completing their books or longer bodies of writing work.  This is an invitation to believe that writing is not luxury, it is necessity. It is truth. It is nourishment. It is power. It is beautiful and profound and an important art that can shift worlds, soothe minds, and  activate profound changes within and without.  

This workshop is in place for you to take your writing seriously while receiving exactly what you need so you can pay attnetion and form a plan of completion for the work that is calling you, has been calling you, and is ready to be born into the world. This is a mastermind workshop to give YOU exactly what you need to focus on your writing.

This includes self-care rituals, meditations, plant medicine advice, guidance around honing your own intuition, magical writing techniques that I live by, and space to take good care of your creative self as your your writing work emerges.

Think of this as a 6 month at-home writing retreat - where you get to write with the support of a writing coach,  a community of writers, and constant reminders of self care and practices for intuitive living as you walk your path of devotion as an artist/writer.

 

+How: 

Once a month we work together one-on-one to establish your writing goals.

Twice a month we work together in a smal 7 person group {via zoom video conferencing}. In these group meetings there will be space to read your work as well as space to for conversation, suggestions, and feedback to your writing. 

You will also recieve monthly written notes on how to clarify, go deeper, + organize your writing.

  • Advise, support and resources for self-publishing.
  • The feeling at the end that you have something to hold, to read, to pass on.

August 2018-January 2019

{we take a big exhale in Decemeber and lighten the workload}. Because of the small number of acceptances into this program, we can vote on the days and times of our zoom workshopping once we are all signed up and ready to go.

+Why: 

  • You need support to write. You don't have time to go back to get your MFA {I did this so I can share with you all I have learned in that process}. You are ready to self publish. You are ready to finish a series of essays, poems, articles, or even all the writing that is needed for your website. Whatever it is you are writing, you know the next step it to receive support.
  •  Not only to be witnessed, but to be guided in becomine a more conscious craftsperson. You are ready to be open to receiving feedback and connecting with other writers because sharing in community is how we grow.
  • Because the world needs more full bodied, full hearted, full storied writers out there. The world needs your book, your body of work. You are done leaking your magic in a million places and instead you are ready to invest in yourself, in your writing.

ABOUT ME:

In short {longer version here} I have been writing since I was 5 years old. I began my MFA in 2003 and am finally finishing it this year. My focus of study is creative non-fiction with a certifcate in "teaching" writing, though I don't believe we need to be taught. I believe we just need support systems in place to we can unleash our words.  I want to offer the kind of space holding one gets at progressive MFA program without having to spend 3 years and $30K - this is why I birthed this program. I have self published 2 books, and 3 others are on the way of being completed. I've been creative writing coaching and developmental editing other writers for 5 years and teaching writing workshops in person and on-line for 7 years. It brings me pure joy and fullfilment to see other's live in their full creative expression and I believe in the stories we are called to write. I believe in writing without apology. And I believe the words needs our voices, in a non-scattered way, more than ever.  My style is compassionate + intuitive space holding with a side of kick-assery. I create brave spaces to explore bold expression and voice, to dig deeper, while maintaining a solid container and so you can succeed in reaching your writing goals. I beleive the world needs more writing than status updates and social media blurps. I want our writing to be given the time and space to grow. To be held. To be resilience for us, for the world.
