What we're about
This is a fun and creative facilitated writing workshop for women where the only rule is that there are no rules! In each session I will present a variety of powerful and inspiring writing techniques for creativity, self care and personal growth. Using various prompts (such as guided visualization, music, and sentence stems) I will lead you through a range of writing processes followed by OPTIONAL sharing. This is NOT a critiquing group. The focus is on mutual support, personal empowerment, validation and self-awareness through the power of writing and storytelling.
This workshop will offer techniques to access your subconscious mind and tap into the inner storyteller, wise healer and creative spirit that exists within. You will discover a process to gather the seeds of wisdom that stem from your writings in order to move toward your full potential. All levels are welcome.
I am a writer and former magazine publisher. I have professional training as a journalist, a Provincial Instructor Diploma in teaching adults, and specialized training in writing workshop facilitation. I have taught writing workshops for the past decade to such diverse groups as writers, artists, caregivers, and women in alcohol and drug recovery. I also work at a children’s hospice, and am writing a book about the power of story.
I currently reside in Vancouver, BC, and was born in the Okanagan Valley. Much of my memories and the landscape of the valley infuse my writings, and I still consider it to be my home. This meetup group will allow me the opportunity to combine my love of "home" with my desire to share the gift of writing with other women!
