Writing workshops for the creative adventurer and the inner gardener

An invitation into conversation with your inner voice, and an opportunity to connect with your creative power – “the force,” to quote Dylan Thomas “that through the green fuse drives the flower.”

Offered online via zoom and in person at my home, on my small (but growing!) front-yard flower farm in Claremont, ON.

  • Are you drawn toward living a more creative life?
  • Do you want to heal creative wounds and reclaim your rightful place as a creative being?
  • Do you want to explore your authentic voice in a safe and supportive space?
  • Do you yearn for deeper, more intimate connection with yourself and with others?
  • Are you longing to build healthy relationships and community?

The Growing Home writing workshops are appropriate for beginners and experienced writers alike. Whether or not you consider yourself a writer, we are all essentially creative beings in human form, and there are treasures within you that your pen will uncover. During our time together we use writing as a tool to dig deep. We plant our feet, send down our roots, lean toward the light, and bloom.

I would be delighted to have you to join our circle, and to nourish and witness your growth as you write your way into your true colours.

Please Note:

*In person workshops are temporarily suspended due to Covid 19*

Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.
