IG FIXED Maggie Way quote

Write Your Life

as a Woman

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 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.

Write Your Life as a Woman – 8-week online series

Evening class: Sundays, April 4th – May 23, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET
(Find your time zone.)  (*4/4 is the religious holiday Easter)

Daytime class: Tuesdays, April 6 – May 25, 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET
(Find your time zone.)

Theme: Shine

Springtime, creativity, spring cleaning, birth and rebirth topics will lead you to explore your past, present and future ways of shining. All things related to shining – how much sunshine are you getting? What needs to be polished? Do you hide your light under a bushel? No! You gotta let it shine!

Write: 

We’ll write by hand, pen on paper, inspired by tips, book excerpts and other insightful information I share in class. The writing prompts can be applied to body, mind or spirit – daily life, a writing project, a creative project, a business project, etc. Follow your mind, pen and heart where it leads you. Then we share by reading aloud, or you can pass. We clap for you for writing either way!

Move:

NEW! Instead of giving a 2-minute warning at the end of the timed writings, I’ll be playing music! And when you’re done writing, you’ll get some Free Dance time and gentle guided movement for just a few minutes. I’m returning to teaching and studying Nia as a movement practice. Writing is such heady work! I’m excited to incorporate movement into Write Your Life as a Woman for a more expansive class experience.

Create:

Each session ends with the writing prompt: I am creating … 

Stream-of-consciousness writing with I am creating …  as a repeated sentence starter leads you deeper or in circles towards more clarity of what you desire to create in your life. Or the realization you need more clarity. It’s not a neat and tidy To Do list for the week, but inspired creative visualization or pre-visualization to support you in big things like expressing your life purpose to more general things like I am creating more joy in my life.

Homework:

I’ll provide optional activities to do on your own. Homework includes daily writing, movement and dance, nature walks, solo sun time, Artist’s Dates, space clearing, self-care rituals, creating supportive routines and more!

As some of you know, my 2021 mantra is “I am creating a life I love.” It has been so powerful for me, and I’ve brought the powerful, feminine, creative energy of the words, I am creating …, to other aspects of life such as “I am creating a roster of high vibe PR clients” and “I am creating time to study dance.” We are always creating. I invite you to join me for more consciously creating by writing and moving for clarity and guidance from within.
