Wild Wisdom Writing Circle For 60+ Writers

After we turn 60, a kind of alchemy begins stirring in our hearts and bones. Although we may have felt “old” before, our relationship to aging becomes more real and undeniable. It’s a time of great changes and great challenges, but along with the losses and physical wake-up calls comes an extraordinary opportunity for growth. For women, this can be an especially liberating time, as we shed our need to please others and claim our time for ourselves to create the life we want to live. For writers, it’s a chance to gather our life onto the page and let it rip - writing wild and true about where we’ve been and where we are now.

The Wild Wisdom Writing Circle will meet twice a month as a gathering of the elder tribe of women writers. There will be prompts and exercises to generate material and lively discussions of writing wild and wise in your 60’s and beyond.
