I am excited to announce that my 'Write with Me' community offering will be turned into an affordable subscription plan for a 3-month period – a perfect way to bring some joy and self-care into the winter months. My ‘Write with Me’ sessions are one of my more whimsical offerings rooted in free writing practices, experimentation and play. The first half of the session will include 30 minutes of grounding + creative free writing exercises to help us meet our unconscious minds, and our innermost thoughts and feelings. The last 60 minutes of the session will be dedicated to co-working together. Use this time to work on personal projects (poems, short stories, a manuscript-in-development, an essay, play, a job application, etc.) or continue on with developing the writing prompts for the week. These sessions are good for carving out a small chunk of time to write with others every week and to stretch your own creative practice in a bite-sized way.
The winter session will start on Tuesday, 14th November 2023 and end on the 27th February 2024. (We will break the week of the 11th December for the Christmas holidays and begin again on Tuesday, 9th January 2024.) You can decide to come to all 12 sessions or pick and choose the dates and times that work for you. I am now offering a morning session and an early evening session.
9:30am – 11:00am BST
3:30pm – 5:00pm BST (10:30am EST or 7:30am PST)
£210 GBP ($256 USD)
“Being a part of Jennifer’s writing group has really inspired me to start doing what I love again. I came to the group after a real slump and a lot of self-doubt about my ideas (something I’m sure most writers can relate to). Jennifer’s supportive attitude and knowledgeable guidance showed me ways to play with my writing that I had not discovered before and the writing group gave me a space to express and explore new techniques. It has given me back my focus. I would highly recommend working with Jennifer if you get the chance!” (Harriet H.)
“The ‘Write with Me’ sessions led by Jennifer have provided a much-needed dedicated space for me to concentrate on my writing that I otherwise would not have made time for. I had been struggling to find a writing group that fit with my schedule. The online format of ‘Write with Me’ allowed me to dedicate time for writing in my weekly routine in a manageable way. It also provided me with much needed structure and focus to my writing. Jennifer’s guidance during each session is wonderfully supportive and provides an excellent balance of focus through intention setting and short exercises while allowing flexibility to focus on what you want to work on during the writing time. Through ‘Write with Me’ Jennifer offers a welcoming environment in which to nurture your ideas. I would highly recommend these sessions to anybody looking to create more space in their lives for writing.” (Daniela S.)
It’s that time of year again for my ‘Write with Me’ sessions! If you’re looking to write with an intimate group of people for four weeks, then these sessions are for you. They’re a wonderful way to start the day and will help kickstart the creative process for anything you want to start or anything you’re currently working on.
The sessions include an intention setting ritual, a poetry reading, warm up exercises and approximately 40 minutes of writing time. You can work on anything you want: journal writing, poetry, friction, non-fiction, academic essay, screenwriting, idea building, etc. At the end of the session, we’ll close with a bit of gratitude. Drop me a line if you have any questions. Can’t wait to write with you!
Testimonials from past workshops
“I attended Jennifer’s “Sun, Moon, Stars : Writing Exercises for a Deep Connection to Self” online workshop which turned into a pleasant surprise. The night before Summer Solstice, the new moon and world yoga day, it enabled me to really connect with my creative writing. Jennifer prepared three main prompts and we started with a few breathing moving techniques which enabled the creative flow. I would highly recommend Jenni as a coach and workshop leader. I aim to implement some of the exercises I learned into my journaling practice.”
