About the Event
Bring in the new year with this virtual writing practice retreat from the comfort of your own home or a cozy cafe or cabin you tuck yourself into for the day (make sure your WiFi is good!)
Writing practice, as taught in Writing Down the Bones, helps us find our voice, grow our writing spines, and wake up to our lives. I will be facilitating this virtual retreat in the same spirit as the one that I attended with the author, Natalie Goldberg, for two weeks on Madeline Island in 2021.
We'll sit (meditate), write, read with no comment in small groups, and repeat. There will be brief breaks, time to stretch, and a lunch break from 12-1 PST.
For those new to writing practice, I encourage you to read Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg prior to this event. It is not required, and I will review the "rules" of writing practice at the beginning of the event. Participants may join and leave as they are able throughout the day, but I do ask that if this is a brand new practice for you, to please be present at the beginning.
This event is donation-based with a recommendation donation of $5 per hour you attend the event (so $30 for the whole thing). An email will be sent after the event with the link to donate if you are able.
Please feel free to share with others. This is for folks ages 18 and up who are both new and experienced in doing writing practice.
Come with a fast-writing pen and notebook (or computer), and I look forward to writing with you in the new year.
