“I am ready to write another life: out here, on the edge, in the wild.” Nancy Mairs
“Where does Wild Woman live? She lives in the place where language is made. She lives on poetry and percussion and singing. Wild Woman is fluent in the language of dreams, images, passion, and poetry." Clarissa Pinkola Estes
If you would like to develop a regular writing practice and explore the stories at the heart of your life, please join us for this twelve week writing program. In a circle of creative and openhearted women we will consider a wide variety of writing styles and genres: memoir and poetry, dreams and writing from the body, music and active imagination, fairy tale and proprioceptive writing.
