Upcoming Classes

Women Writing for (a) Change®


Our work is to make ourselves visible in the world. This is the soul’s individual journey, and the soul would much rather fail at its own life then succeed at someone else’s. ~ David Whyte

I am the only one who can tell the story of my life and say what it means~ Dorothy Allison

Come spread your writer’s wings 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.


  • FREE Samplers are designed to introduce new participants to the practices used in WWf(a)C Core Classes before committing to the course.  Upcoming samplers are:
  • Saturday, August 18, 2018  ~ 10:00-12noon
  • Saturday, September 1, 2018 ~ 10:00-12noon

The Free Samplers are 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.

Sign up early to reserve yourself a seat! Samplers are limited to 12 women. Click below to fill out the Sampler registration form.

I will respond to confirm your space in the circle and send a welcome letter one week before the event.
