An Online Circle


As those of you who visit here regularly know, Carrie Link and I are offering a writing workshop in Portland starting in January. We are amazed and excited that so many of you have asked about the possibility of an online class. So it is with pleasure that we are announcing our online memoir writing class, to begin Monday, January 11. (We still have two more spots in the in-person class, if you live in the Portland area.)

Many of you are in situations where going to a class won’t work, but you’re hungry for a memoir writing community and for the accountability attending a class creates. If you’re looking for a safe place in which to tell your story and receive support and feedback, whether it’s your first effort or whether you’ve finished a book, this class will satisfy that need.

We will provide prompts, deadlines, teachings that will add to your craft tool kit, and detailed feedback for your writing. You will write, share your writing, and offer feedback and support to each other.

Please contact us for cost and additional information. We’re looking forward to learning and writing and moving closer to the light of truth together with you.

What a great opportunity for an online class. I'm not sure that I see writing in my near future although I have certainly had a colorful past. I have learned many lessons the hard way and feel God allowed me to experience things to help others prevent making the same mistakes. Perhaps I need to write? I'll keep in touch! Happy Thanksgiving!
Hugs!

What a wonderful idea! *smiling*

(and Deb - your comment - I wonder what I was/am longing for - there is a longing in that post . . . )
