Fierce Encouragement for Writing + Life

Upcoming Writing Groups

Registration now open for:


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.

September 2 - December 20, 2019

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

Dive Into Poetry

A month-long poetry party is by the people and for the people — WE, THE PEOPLE. Going strong since 2016, 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.

November 1 - 30, 2019


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