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

Important Note from Karen:

Due to the Corona Virus, our Spring classes took a pause. We will finish our semester during the 8-week slots beginning in September of 2020 (virtually) via our newly discovered Zoom technology! We have successfully managed to stay connected via Zoom and have discovered that we can inspire one another and find motivation to write through this virtual reality! Just imagine enjoying the comfort and support of a community of women writers from the comfort of your home~ we are able to feel the energy of our sacred circles and share inspiration to write as we seek balance during these uncertain times.

I had the privilege of doing an interview on Kosmic Voices on August 4th. What a great opportunity it was to up my writing practice, in anticipation of our topic, Writing and Personal Peace.
