Wild Wisdom Writing Circle for writers 60+
As writers, we all have our stop-and-start moments when inspiration comes and goes and the page remains blank. And as older writers, we might question whether writing at this point is worth it. Or even possible. Maybe we should just give up.
But then there’s that voice inside us… a voice on fire with memory and image and a narrator insistent on being heard. With it is a world and a self that you cannot forget. In those unforgettable memories are the stories that need to be told and heard – to you as well as others.
There’s no better time to do it than now. We have the extraordinary perspective that age brings and the unique experience of our history, both personal and historical. We have seen what has changed- and what has not. We know what silences still need to be broken.
If you have burning desire to pour out your wildness and wisdom on the page, to write more, write better, to stop making excuses, then this is the group for you. In the Wild Wisdom Writing Circle, you will join a community of writing sisters who will inspire, support and embolden you while author Jan Gary provides memory portals that crack open story and craft lessons that arise organically out of your own writing.
As the writer George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) wrote, It is never too late to become who you are. Your truth, your art, your creative self is waiting.
Enter the Circle and let the writing begin!
6 sessions will meet every other Thursday over twelve weeks: September 9, 23, October 7, 21, November 4, 18
