Write Our Hearts

Come for gentle writing. Introspection. Self expression in a circle of caring and community. Come gather virtually in the Cottage in the Woods with Sparrow: she literally wants us to prep food ahead and get away from the family and the dishes for forty eight hours to write our stories. It's so hard to find time for ourselves, so let's intentionally make that time. From Friday evening through Sunday afternoon there will be writing to prompts, conversation, ideas, blocks of free writing time. Does your heart ache to express a private grief on the page? Is your subconscious telling you to rewrite a story? Do you need to rewrite your story? This weekend will use the brand new Autumn Leaves set of prompts.

Here's the plan:
Friday the 25th from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM Eastern: Community, Evening pages, and Escape
Saturday the 26th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM Eastern: Recovery of Wonder
Saturday the 26th from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern: Nap time.
Saturday the 26th from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM Eastern: Recovery of Hope
Sunday the 27th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern: Consolation and Eucatastrophe

Our goal is to write our hearts. Is that memoir? Is that a new story just for yourself? Is that a long, long prayer in the form of a poem? Writers might write between sessions as well as during. Some writers bring their characters to Writing Retreat and write in that character's voice as they work deeper and deeper meaning into their Stories.

You are going to end this amazing experience with something that is uniquely yours. Whether this turns out to be a narrative, creative nonfiction, or a huge list of Be-Happy-Attitudes, this deserves to be on your page, just for you.
