Writing classes for brave souls ready to own and tell their story.

Slow down, reflect and harness the wisdom of your experience.
No previous writing experience necessary!

You have stories to tell...

Writing helps clarify your thinking by allowing you to witness your experiences, values and beliefs. It also helps you reflect on what has been, understand where you are now and develop a compelling vision for your future.

But it can be hard... really hard to get started.

For many of us, the hardest part is simply sitting down and getting words onto the page. These courses are designed to guide, support, and motivate students toward writing their most authentic and important stories by offering inspiration, time, on-going encouragement, accountability and peer feedback.

While our experiences are unique, they each hold a deeper, universal truth.

When we dare to share our story, it resonates and connects us to ourselves... and those around us.

How it works

No writing experience necessary!

Piecing together the stories that make up your life can help bring  the picture of your life into focus.  In this 6-week class we’ll use exercises and questions to spark creativity, self-awareness, and memories. Each week we will look at a different piece of the puzzle by writing on a unique theme. By reflecting on  life experiences such as branching points, family, health, work, values and death you’ll begin to see the common storyline that brings the pieces of your life together.

Is your narrative working?

I should have…. I could have… If only…  are all common thoughts. Sometimes they’re brief and we easily move on. However, other times we get caught up, ruminating about what could have been if only we had made a different choice, taken a different path or ordered a different flavor. The thing is, you can’t change the past  no matter how much you think about it and rumination doesn’t help. In this 4 week class, we’ll use writing as a tool to look at our regrets while learning how to make peace with our past and love what is.

Does happiness feel like an elusive goal?

Most people think once I make more money… reach my goal weight… find the right job… or the right house… or the right spouse… then I’ll be happy. In this 4 week class, we’ll use writing as a tool to delve into what we think will make us happy and the things that actually do. In the process we’ll demystify the pursuit of happiness and use research backed practices to make our lives a bit happier.
