Come and be nourished among other writers for an entire day. Tap into new wellsprings. See what bubbles up.
We will gather in my home in Toronto’s west end after 9:30 and begin writing together at 10:00.
I will provide prompts to get your creative juices flowing. You will be invited to share your on-the-spot writing with a supportive audience and you will receive valuable feedback.
After a delicious lunch, you will have approximately 2.5 hours of silent time during which you may do whatever you wish: continue something begun in the morning, work on something you have left simmering for months, begin something you’ve wanted to bring to life for years, go for a walk, meditate, clean my house. Okay, maybe not that. I’ll try to clean before you come.
We will gather again around 4:00 for a last reading of the day. We should finish by 5:00. Okay, maybe 5:30.
I am certified in the Amherst Writer’s and Artist’s (AWA) method of writing facilitation, developed by Pat Schneider. I love her.
“Whether your purpose for writing is artistic expression, communication with friends and family, the healing of the inner life, or achieving public recognition for your art – the foundation is the same: the claiming of yourself as an artist/writer and the strengthening of your writing voice through practice, study, and helpful response from other writers.” – Pat Schneider
I am able to facilitate a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 writers at a time.
Bring your laptop or write by hand. (What a concept!)
The cost is $60 and this includes lunch. I ask that you email me with the date to secure a place, and then pay by cheque or email funds transfer within a week to secure your space.
