Write, connect, heal, and grow
in a community of like-hearted women.
“Part of the magic of Susan’s writing circles comes from the ceremony and guided visualization she leads before we write. From that centered place, I am able to release my inner critic, and my heart comes pouring out in words.”
Scout Tomyris, Santa Rosa, CA

What’s your love story?
Nothing evokes our feelings like the power of love. Romantic love. Secret love. Forbidden love. Longing, lust, and loss. Any way you look at it, the passion runs deep and the stories are ripe for exploring. What’s your love story?
