MAKE TIME FOR WRITING

HALF-DAY WORKSHOP

Spend your Saturday morning with a little quiet time and a chance to tune in with your thoughts. No writing experience necessary, just bring your journal and a pen, and your curiosity.​

 

​Members will be given prompts to use as writing inspiration and a set amount of time to write. Writers can read their work aloud if they want to share. Listeners respond with only what they liked, what was strong and what stayed with them. Everything written in the workshop is treated as fiction, ensuring a safe, welcoming place in which to write about any subject.

 

MORNINGS WITH MOMS

If you are a mom and you are a writer, you probably know what it's like to frantically scribble down your ideas in broken crayon on the back of a tampon box while someone is pounding their tiny fist on the other side of the bathroom door. Or maybe that's just me. ​

 

If you're looking for a block of uninterrupted time each week to think and write and dream, look no further. This is your chance to play. I'll provide the prompts and you can relax and write. You'll have the opportunity to share your work and provide feedback for others. Each week, we will celebrate our strengths as writers and the fact that for one hour of the day no one is throwing up on us.

 

This is a chance for moms to get inspired, get connected, and get excited about creating a creative life. We meet most Wednesdays from 12:30-1:30 at Petaluma Coffee and Tea Company. (Our new time isn't really morning anymore but the old name stuck.) Contact Nicki at WriteWithNicki@gmail.com for details. 

WRITING THROUGH RECOVERY

If our experience is our greatest asset, let’s face it. Alcoholics and addicts have got some great material. Whether you are an experienced writer or new to the page, this group provides a safe, supportive environment to find your voice and unleash your creativity.

 

As AWA affiliate John Crandall puts it, “That which was broken or only dimly understood comes clear as you write. When we can share our experiences in a safe, supportive environment, we realize even deeper benefits. We no longer endure in a vacuum, we become part of a community, supporting and being supported by others.”

SATURDAYS AT STINSON

What do I love even more than a fresh notebook and a fancy new pen? Breaking them in at the beach! Start your Saturday out right with a little quiet time close to nature and a chance to tune in with your thoughts. No writing experience necessary, just bring your journal and a pen, and maybe a little sunscreen! Or a blanket. This is Northern California after all, not the Bahamas, folks.​

 

But whatever the weather, it's always a great day when you're writing. ​Members will be given a prompt to use as writing inspiration and a set amount of time to write. Writers can read their work aloud if they want to share. Listeners respond with only what they liked, what was strong and what stayed with them.

BLOGGER BOOT CAMP (Online)

Have you been blogging regularly and need a little motivation to keep going? Do you blog so infrequently that you have to look up your password everytime you want to add a new post?

 

Whether you are looking for support to keep your blog going during the busy holiday season or just need some help getting started, this group can help you meet your writing and blogging goals.

 

We will write together each week with prompts provided or with ideas of your own. We can share ideas and positive feedback about what's working and what's keeping us stuck.
