Experience the freedom and joy of effortless writing.

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
