What TO EXPECT
MODULE 1: FINDING YOUR VOICE
Every writer has a voice, an energy, and a rhythm unique to them. And you are no different. Come explore and play with all the possible ways of developing and nurturing your style and learn how to bring it into your writing effectively.
MODULE 2: TELLING YOUR STORY
You’ve found your voice and now it’s time to tell your story. In this module you’ll choose a particular idea, a project, or even a vague notion you want to explore further with the group. We’ll help you cut through the noise of self-doubt and mental paralysis and get to the heart of your unique offering.
MODULE 3: WRITING YOUR BOOK
Now, you’ll focus on your project, with lots of time and encouragement to write, share what you’ve written and receive feedback from our nurturing community. I’ll explain how to write a book proposal—and even share my template for one that always attracts the attention of agents and publishers.
What you get
A combination of:
- Writing exercises
- Small group sharing
- Gentle feedback
- In-session and prerecorded advice from agents, authors, and publishers
Plus, a host of mindful practices to help you
- Uncover and connect with your unique style and voice
- Choose or refine a project to work on
- Keep writing with an eye toward publishing your book.
How We Engage
LIVE over Zoom
One evening each week for 90 minutes we gather together to write, read what we’ve written, support one another, and bring a sense of delight back into the process.
You’ll have several opportunities to meet with me one-on-one and receive my signature feedback (which is always kind, I promise…and almost always helpful!).
3 Personalized Videos
Three times during each six-week session, you’ll receive a pre-recorded video that addresses a particular challenge and provides tips for meeting it.
What My Students Are Saying

This isn’t your ordinary writing program; there is a paradigm shift here, which nurtures a deeper level of potent witnessing and provides support for the process of our own emergent vulnerability.
