In honor of the beginning of this beautiful fall season I am offering a FREE writing workshop for women.
On Sunday, October 28, 2012 @ 6:00pm – 10:00pm EST
Join me for the first  ~ Women of the World Writers Workshop~
This is a FREE writing workshop being offered with the intention of providing a sacred space for women to gather virtually from all over the world to write together.
Have you been carrying a story that is suffocating you… a story that will not let you sleep?
Do you want support in beginning that project unsure of where to begin?
Are you ready to stop procrastinating and take YOU seriously?
Have you started the story but are feeling blocked or paralyzed?
Are you a closeted writer?
Are you afraid to answer your call?
This is the time.  I will be facilitating a writing workshop for women who are ready to BEGIN… for women who want to WRITE. This is a safe space to share your story and be SUPPORTED on this writer’s journey, which is one that can be incredibly lonely.
You have an important story to tell! You were BORN TO TELL THIS STORY! Don’t waste another day.
See you on Sunday, October 28, 2012
