Rejuvenate Your Writing Life! A Mini-Retreat for Writing Mamas
New year, new writing you!
What do you need to turn your writing dream into a reality this year? Kick off 2013 by giving yourself the rejuvenating gift of time and space for contemplation and creativity. Think of it as a spa treatment for your mind—and the best kind of new year’s resolution.
Maybe you’ve kept a private journal and dream of starting a blog. Maybe you have an idea for a memoir. Or maybe you just want to start writing and don’t yet know the form. Chances are, if you’re a mother and trying to write, your greatest obstacle is time. Whether you’re at the idea stage or further along, we’ll help you get to the next level not only in your writing, but in your writing life.
In this relaxed setting—and with an instructor who believes writing is vital, even when it has to take place in the crevices of our lives—we’ll combine strategies for how to fit writing into your everyday life with concrete exercises and feedback designed to get your creative juices flowing. We’ll provide a stimulating and pampering combination of workshops, group conversations with other writer-mothers, one-on-one consultations, inspiring writing prompts, and Q&As. You’ll leave at the end of the day with fresh ideas and insights, some new writing, concrete goals for your writing and your life – and a sense of community, something no writing mama should be without.
This day-long gift-to-self includes a delicious lunch, healthy snacks, caffeine (and caffeine-free) drinks … and of course – chocolate!
