Women Writing for (a) Change®


I read the way a person might swim, to save his or her life. I wrote that way, too. ~ Mary Oliver

Come and experience the healing that happens through writing in community.  This is a non-competitive, supportive place to explore your inner voice through words, a place to experience ‘deep listening,’ to find inspiration for your own writing practice and to share the gift of words.

Taking time for yourself and your writing is critical… this needs to be a deliberate choice… an arrangement you make with yourself… as important as the time you set aside to be with the people you love most in the world. Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you can nurture… it determines all other relationships ~ G. Lynn Nelson~ Writing and Being


FREE Samplers are designed to introduce new participants to the practices used in WWf(a)C Core Classes before committing to the course and to bring writing women together.

  • Saturday, August 24 , 2019 ~ 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon

The Free Sampler is a delightful way to get a feel for the classes and a wonderful way to meet other women who love to write. Here we deeply listen to one another and advocate for each other’s writing. No matter where you are in the writing process you will find a supportive, conscious community of women and plenty of inspiration! Whether you hope to enhance, re-engage, or explore the healing power of writing for the first time, these circles will support women in all stages of the writing process.
