Courting the Muse—A three part writing series

COURTING YOUR MUSE—Three Part Writing Series

In the safe and welcoming space of the Doghouse, a group of writers will gather for three morning sessions over the course of three months. You'll spend the hours writing and sharing and listening. There's a synergy and aliveness that comes from writing in a group, and this will be fostered by inviting everyone to read aloud. With Traci's guidance and encouragement, you'll also learn the importance of grounding your process in the details, playing with language, and devoting your words to the muse.

In between gatherings, Traci will offer a weekly, online lesson to keep you inspired. She’ll also facilitate a private Facebook group for writing support.

No experience necessary!

Please bring a notebook and pen. we will be writing and writing and writing.

Investment: $175 for all three workshops.  To register please email
