A New Year and Welcome To Our Writers

A new year has begun and it is with great anticipation we look forward to our Women's Writing Circle.

A writing group helps us grow as writers. Our sacred container offers us a place to share our journeys, both as writers and women. Together we break the isolation of the writing life and encourage and renew each other as we move forward on a positive and energizing journey to make a difference through the written word and story.

Our "table" seats and honors a diverse array of voices, stories and writing techniques. How wonderful to be offered a seat at this table!

This year we continue to emphasize writing strategies and techniques to create ever more readable and professional writing, as well as monthly writing prompts listed under Circle Read Arounds. Authors are welcome to attend the Circle to sell their books, and critiques for aspiring authors are especially valuable.

For those who have already made a commitment to the Circle, I thank you. As always, the Hilton Garden Inn continues to provide a beautiful meeting space, along with complimentary bottled water, coffee and tea; notepads and pens.

We have openings for full time and part time memberships. This offers the opportunity to mark your calendar and make a commitment to your creative life. As I wrote in this post, life is busy and the demands on our time as women are many. Can you allow yourself the luxury of devoting a morning to yourself and your writing?

Writing is at the very least a journey of self-discovery. As Virginia Woolf said, “The man who is aware of himself is henceforth independent; and he is never bored, and life is too short, and he is steeped through and through with a profound yet temperate happiness.”
Thank you for your continued support. None of this would be possible without you.

I've included the link to membership. Note that this year we will begin at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at noon every second Saturday of the month except for February and July.
I hope to see you for our first read around of the new year on Jan. 14. This is always a very popular session so RSVP soon.

Best wishes and with gratitude,
