Writing is a way to listen to the deepest self and inner voice of wisdom. What tools enable us to access the deep voice of guidance? What stories do we feel compelled to share? How is writing to heal different from journaling? 

We'll generate material using intuitive writing and share what we wrote during the week. Sessions will be geared to the level of the writers in the group: if you are a beginner, we'll discuss best ways to establish a writing practice, if you are experienced, we'll discuss ways to cultivate writing support. 

(Cafe asks that we buy refreshments each session: they have home-made sandwiches and soups as well as coffee drinks and my favorite: rose tea lemonade communitygrounds.com)

Oct 7: Session 1: Story practice: from journaling, notes and ideas to stories. We'll write together and then we'll cover the basic craft elements of story: setting, character, pacing. What makes a story come alive? We'll critique in the afternoon. Bring copies of a short piece for critiquing if you wish or we'll critique what you wrote in the morning session.
 
Oct 28: Session 2: Develop your skills:
In the morning session, we'll work on inner and external conflicts to move the story along. In the afternoon session, we'll discuss the world of publishing: how to write query letters, where to submit, how to develop your platform, and briefly touch on the differences between self-publishing, hybrid publishing and traditional publishing. 

 
 Cultivating Resiliency Thru Writing

We are in the midst of profound personal awakening and transformation as well as paradigm shifts in our world. Resilience, the ability to cope, can strengthen our courage. How can we rise above life's challenges? 
Join us for this presentation about ways to raise your vibration and nourish your soul when life feels overwhelming. 
Wendy will share her personal healing story. We'll practice spontaneous free writing and learn how writing can access our inner guidance 
and healing wisdom

"I found this class a great support as I journey to make a commitment to write on a regular basis. Your workshop goes beyond teaching for resiliency. Sharing your personal story allowed me to think of everyone's story.  It helped me to claim that I have something meaningful to put out into the world through my writing." -- G. Smith

"Each class I attend with you as the facilitator gives me a new insight, technique or facet to writing and this class was no different. I gained insight into taking journal writing one step further to self-reflective writing. It was a discovery that illuminated the writing process as a tool for healing. You shared your story in a clean, graceful way that was inspiring and up-lifting.  As always, the caliber of your class was excellent, providing an atmosphere of safety and acceptance, encouraging vulnerability and authenticity in sharing." --R.K.

"The writing workshop for me was a wonderful way to find my voice. The exercises were a door into my creative side which I found thrilling and affirming."-- C. Haasken
