Do you feel the urge to write but don’t know where to begin? Are you an experienced writer who needs to hit reset? Are you looking for a nurturing community where you can make new friends, heal old wounds and, at the same time, learn to make your work resonate with deep personal meaning?

Enhance and honor your natural gifts as a writer and human, overcome personal and creative challenges in a supportive environment, and set and achieve personal and creative goals with the help of like-minded souls, in this ten-week course with weekly two-three hour Zoom meetings..


Sunday, July 17 Online 1:30-3:30 PST for 10 weeks 


Enrollment limit: 12 

This class will provide a safe space for personal growth and healing, and you will also learn the basics of writing fiction (memoirists and poets also welcome). Topics covered include: character gift/flaw, want/need and arc, antagonists, setting, voice, theme and more. In Wired For Story, Lisa Cron argues that story was crucial to our evolution, providing templates for survival in a dangerous world. By telling stories, we teach our readers how to navigate the dangers that come with being human, and we reinforce our own strategies for survival.

My 12 Questions will help writers tell more powerful stories, hopefully to guide others, and also let us examine our own lives in different ways.

Each week you will receive a mini lecture via email. You will respond to my questions and assignments with 5 double-spaced 12 pt. font pages by the following week and give and receive feedback. We will also meet ONLINE, SUNDAYS FROM 1:30-3:30 PST using ZOOM, to chat about our writing (and offer support).

By the end of the course, you will have the template to write or revise a longer piece of work. You will also have connected to yourself and to others through the healing power of story.
