Write from the comfort of your home computer. You’ll join a Zoom room on your screen where you will see and hear all the writers.

We write to prompts for 10–20 min. periods then share/read our fresh work aloud (you are always free not to read). Prompts are chosen to target various writing skills to build writing skills as we build community.

Maximum 8 writers per session. See schedule of workshops below to select your preferred time.

We’ll meet in a beautiful public space in the
Arizona Sonoran desert. We’ll have a short, guided meditation, then write to prompts provided by Carol on themes of nature and spirit. We’ll share our fresh wrting wiht the group (you’re always free not to read) and receive feedback on what was strong. Then we’ll have a short hike (15-20 min.) through through the Saguros and green valleys followed by another short writing session. Then hike back to the staritng point. No critics are allowed but your will receive gentle, supportive feedback from the group fand facilitator on what’s strong and memorable in your writing. Come and enjoy the beauity of nature while we engage n our passion for wirting.!
