Fierce Encouragement for Writing + Life

The Sound of Real Life Happening

Some people ascribe to magic portals, celestial gateways, and other ethereal spiritual woo. I ascribe to being here now, solid ground, and the power of showing up with awareness and intention in our everyday lives. This is where we live, work, love, and grow — and where we can affect actual change.

Dive Into Poetry

You’ll find your own points of access into poetry across centuries, cultures, forms, and styles — and (if you wish) try your hand at writing and sharing some poems of your own. Participation can be totally solo and self-paced, or as part of a group of fellow poetry seekers and lovers. Each Dive is different, and includes original poems by Jena, links to poets who may be new to you, and invitations to stretch your writing wings in all kinds of new ways.

Blossom {2 week group}

Limited to 12 participants, this 2-week group offers a uniquely intimate and intensive experience of personal attention and readership.  Given permission to write without editing or polishing as you go, you'll see things you've never noticed before and generate writing that will surprise you with its truth and beauty. Our secret Facebook group is a refuge, where kindness reigns supreme.

Jewels on the Path

This 12-week spring-into-summer session of Jewels is limited to 12 women 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.

Mini Memoirs

Bite-sized pieces and baby steps are a good way to start writing, or to finish writing, or to keep going. Wherever you may be in relation to a memory or a moment in your life that has a hold on you, these four weeks will give you the time, space, and structure to let them speak, in a safe container of fellow writers and insightful readers.

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