“Summer WILD Women’s Online Writing Group” ~ Eight Weeks: Beginning July 9
“We need the tonic of wildness …
At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things,
we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable,
that land and sea be indefinitely wild,
unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable.
We can never have enough of nature.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Dear Women Under the Same Moon,
Thank you for your inspiring requests for an online writing group! This summer I’m excited to offer this “Summer WILD Women’s Online Writing Group” … I love the idea of women writing together under the same moon and strewn stars … near and far! ✍️🌙✨
How It Works
Each week you’ll receive an email with “Inspiration” (quotes, poems, and passages from WILD sources) and “Prompts” (open-ended phrases and questions) for three distinct writings: a 15 minute “warm-up,” a 30 minute opportunity, and a final 5-10 minute “quick write.” You are invited to write from all or any, then share with the group via email. Your writing will be “witnessed” (not edited or critiqued), and any feedback you receive will be reflective statements affirming what your group members liked, loved, enjoyed and felt the most. I love this part, and I will comment, too! You are not required to share any writing, or to comment if you are not authentically moved … though please keep in mind, there is much value, love, joy, and connection in the sharing both ways.
A Note About Timing
Each woman has the freedom to post any of her writing as she wishes, preferably within the week’s time in order to stay current … witnessing will be offered in a similarly timely manner. I’ll suggest a “deadline” within the week’s time frame, though there will also be flexibility within the eight weeks. I will provide clear guidelines for how to participate as a writer and a witness.
