Stay tuned for retreats and in-person classes!

Gentle guidance to follow your heart, reconnect with your voice and clarify intentions.

In the style of journal writing workshops, and expressive writing,

we write by hand, pen on paper, in response to readings and prompts.

What happens in class…

  • Each writer makes a commitment to follow the class contract. View it here.
  • Though we are connected online – we write by hand with pen or pencil on paper. Old school.
  • We write in response to prompts and read out loud in class. However, you can always “pass” and no one will mind a bit. (Bullies do not take this class. Only really nice people take this class.)
  • Even if you don’t like to write, don’t worry… words will be spilling out of you right away… it’s magical.
  • With a focus on the process and experience of writing, there is no critiquing – only gentle encouragement in a non-academic, creative environment. No writing experience is necessary.
  • Guaranteed good for the head and heart.

“A rainy Sunday writing class with Dean at The Writing Barn felt like a beautifully wrapped Tiffany-colored box gift to myself.” – Kelley Burrus, conference planner

“I loved Dean’s writing workshop “Write Your Life As A Woman.” It became a weekly ritual that I looked forward to … I loved this format of class – no critiquing, no judging – just writing and sharing. I would take it again!” – Suzanna Choffel, singer/songwriter

“Dean’s class helped me get more in touch with my writing, my life direction and a lot of kick ass females. I recommend this class to anyone looking for a little pick-me-up in the soul department.” – Laura, 28, engineer/writer/blogger

“… learning how to allow all of my thoughts and words to reach the paper without judging them… This class has been such an amazing experience and I am looking forward to seeing how this affects my songwriting as well.” – Vanessa Lively, singer/songwriter, artist

“… tapped into parts of me that were long dormant. Opened doors of creativity and intuitiveness I didn’t know I had. The class allowed me to be me.” – Leigh,  pharmaceutical sales rep

“.. more confidence and faith in myself, in others and in the world in general. It was a true blessing.” – Catherine, tech writer
