What we're about
This is a fun and creative facilitated writing group for women where the only rule is that there are no rules! In each group I 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 lead you through 3 – 4 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.
I offer techniques to access your subconscious mind and tap into the inner storyteller, wise healer and creative spirit that exists within. In these sessions, you will also discover a process to gather the seeds of wisdom that stem from your writings in order to move toward your full potential.
We will write in a cozy, inspiring space on Vancouver's West side with a breathtaking view of the North Shore mountains and ocean.
Please bring a notebook and pen. Beverages provided.
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 15 years 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 currently writing a book about the power of story.
