Upcoming Writing Groups

Registration now open for:


“Out of My Hands”

Give your inner critic the boot, restore your faith in humanity, and get words on the page during this safe and welcoming one-week writing group. Each morning will deliver an evocative prompt to your inbox, and you’ll be invited to set a timer for 10 minutes of freewriting — no editing, no polishing, no making it “good.” Participants will gather to share their writing in a secret Facebook group. All welcome.

August 5-9, 2019


Living Your Values {Workshop}

Spend a Sunday afternoon clarifying & exploring your core values. Expect a relaxed and safe atmosphere where you’ll get personal attention, have time for silent writing, and leave with a personal roadmap that will help you live in greater alignment with what matters most to you.

July 28, 2019 | 1:00-4:00pm | Amherst MA

Jewels on the Path

This 16-week fall session of Jewels is limited to 12 women & non-binary writers who wish to be highly participatory. Each week, we set intentions for writing + life on Mondays, share new work on Wednesdays, and check in to reflect on the learning on Fridays. It’s self-directed, meaning you can use it to keep up a writing practice and/or gain momentum for a specific writing project. Each session becomes a special community of mutual accountability, support, and friendship.

49 Reasons

This 7-week group will begin with an examination of some of your old decision stories, move on to identify a specific decision you’re currently sitting with, unearth and bust open some of the unconscious influences that might affect or alter your authentic beliefs and desires, and ultimately move you towards concrete steps for moving forward.  

October 21 - December 6, 2019


One learns by thinking about writing and by talking about writing, but primarily through writing.”
