Last night the Women Writing the World Workshop was a tremendous success. Although the threat of disaster prevented many women from participating seven women did in fact show up to write together, to create together, to expose themselves and to excavate. These writers wrote from their SOULS!
There were thirty women who answered the call and I brought all thirty of you into the circle. It was powerful, profound, intense, courageous, beautiful, painful, honest and raw. The women worked HARD! They wrote LONG! They wanted to continue writing. Four hours wasn't enough. The writing styles varied... each woman different... yet what they do have in common is that they each have an incredibly important story to tell and they came READY TO TELL IT.
After having some time to reflect on this journey with them, if I am being honest, last nights writers workshop left me completely depleted in the most amazing way.
The women who braved this writer’s workshop went there…. They really went there. These writers were fearless. Their stories IMPORTANT. Each of them showed up not knowing what to expect and left having created something incredibly profound. They will never know how honored I felt to share that space with them. I want to them to know that I hold each of them and honor who they are and where they come from. I am grateful they showed up. To the writers unable to join us you were missed, but definitely not forgotten.
For those women who were unable to attend last nights writing workshop I decided to offer it again for FREE, next Sunday, November 4th from 5pm - 7pm.

The Writing With Intention Workshop is a six-session writing intensive. In this workshop we get down to the business of writing. Here you will receive writing prompts and exercises to push you further in your writing practice. It is about Writing with Intention! When we sit down at our computers or in front of our journals do we set an intention for what it is we would like to explore in our stories? Do we ask our characters where they would like to take us? In this workshop we will begin at the beginning exploring our writing styles and process, discovering and listening to our voice, surrendering and trusting the process, story structure, re-writes and arriving to completion.
It is about being clear about what we are here to do… and getting right down to it! It’s about writing. As 2012 comes to a close I would be honored to support you in beginning or moving toward that thing you are dying to write. It’s about setting an INTENTION to move forward no matter what obstacles arise. Nothing before this moment matters.
Dates: Nov. 11, 18, 25 and Dec. 2, 9, 16
