Who is this Workshop for?

  • You’ve never really written but feel drawn to explore this part of yourself.
  • You’re a seasoned writer and crave a stimulating environment to work on your material or try new genres.
  • You’re a social animal and benefit from being part of a circle of close, supportive women.
  • You know how important it is for women to be there for each other through the craziness of life.
  • You like to laugh! You also respect the power of tears to release us from pain and open us to healing.
  • You are welcoming healing into your life, whether this is trauma-related or in response to anxiety or depression.
How can the Workshop benefit me?

Now in its 4th year, the Workshop has supported women tremendously in both writing and personal development!

Participants have:

  • Broken through long-standing writing blocks that have inhibited their comfort in writing and sharing their writing
  • Moved from prosaic to expressive and lyrical writing
  • Grown distinctive writing voices
  • Found the courage and inspiration to write in new genres and/or take their work to the stage
  • Were inspired to add to their ongoing writing projects during sessions (i.e. memoir, creative non-fiction manuscripts)
  • Experienced deep and powerful support from the group while going through rough times/working through trauma
  • Developed close friendships that lasted far beyond the Workshop

What is the Women’s Writing as Healing Workshop?

The Workshop is a series of weekly workshops designed to empower you to love, understand and express yourself. 

You’ll be part of an intimate group of women who support each other as they share thoughts, emotions, experiences and writing in a safe and dynamic environment. 

Each week you’ll explore a different theme through specially tailored writing prompts. Examples of themes are gratitude, love and self-worth. 

You’ll enjoy guided visualizations, wisdom from wise teachers and many carefully selected and inspiring writing prompts. Sharing writing is encouraged and optional.

More than a workshop, the Workshop is an incubator for inspiration, growth and healing and ! It is driven by the power of sisterhood – by women nurturing each other to be their best.
