"Find Your" Voice
I want to be a writer. I know there’s a book in me. I have so many story
How many times in your life have you had thoughts like this?
The truth is…you are a writer. Even if you’ve never written a word. I believe
we are all writers…maybe just deep inside. But sometimes, it’s just hard for us
to find our writing voices. That’s what my workshops will do.
I'll help you find your voice.
Throughout the year, I’ll be offering workshops at my home (lunch included) for
writers—because that’s what you are. If you want to write, if you have a desire
to write, you ARE a writer.
Let me be clear. This isn’t a workshop to teach you how to write. (That’s a whole
different ballgame.) This is a workshop that will help you unleash your creativity.
It works like this. You arrive at my house in the morning with a notebook and your
favorite writing implement—pen, pencil, ink & quill (or laptop, if you prefer.)
I’ll lead a series of exercises in which you’ll be given a specific amount of time
to write whatever comes into your head.
Some call it "free writing." I call it "unleashing your creativity."
Once the writing period has ended, we all gather together and share what we wrote…if
you want to share.
It’s okay if you don’t. However, there will be no judging of the
merit of the writing…no criticism, no suggestions.
Each writer will just state how the writer’s words made them feel.
This way, we, as writers, won’t feel inhibited by the
writing session; if we know we’re not being judged, we feel free
to let the words flow—and that’s what it’s all about.
Whether or not you choose to "do something" with the work you’ve produced during
the workshop is completely up to you.
Sometimes we walk away with pages of good stuff (I once wrote the prologue
for a new novel at a workshop) or we may walk away with
simply the satisfaction of spending an entire day writing.
After a day of "unleashing our creativity," we’ve achieved something of
great value. Our blank pages have turned into something that hadn’t
existed before. If you’ve always wanted to "be a writer," all you
have to do is put pen to paper. And I’d like to help you find the
joy in that.
Fee: $60 per person (includes lunch)
