What's calling for your creative attention? Searching for a creative routine that will help you pause and reflect? Maybe you've wanted to start journaling, or maybe you've written for a long time but want to connect more deeply with your voice...

This group is for people who want to connect with the stories they carry. Writing circles are monthly gatherings at Voice & Vessel, my writing studio in northeast Grand Rapids. During each circle, I'll share readings (poems, essays, etc.), writing prompts, and creative practices that invite reflection and help us find our voice on the page. 

About the leader and writing circle approach: I'm Emily Stoddard, a writer and Certified Leader of the Amherst Writers & Artists Method. I'll use aspects of the method in our circles, and we'll also take cues from reflective writing, journaling, and contemplative writing practices. All voices, journeys/backgrounds, and experience levels are invited!
