Announcement: Second class on "Writing with vulnerability in mind"
Back by popular demand!
I was really floored by the applications for the first class’ announcement that there’s already a waitlist for the next class… so I thought I’d announce another class again. I’m really honored that anyone wants to sit and learn with me, and I’m currently having a real blast teaching the first class so I’m eager to do so again.
I do realize that I need to get paid more for what I’m doing (which is giving my all!) so I’ve raised the class a little, but I’m still giving away two free scholarships. Unfortunately I had so many applications from last time I’ve already chosen two candidates from the last pool. If I get another waitlist for this I might do another class, but it really depends on interest.
Spots are limited and last time it filled out in three days, so this time I’m going to make the deadline to apply Monday the 17th.
with love, hope to see you in class!
Writing with vulnerability in mind, Part 2.
June 22nd to July 27th, Tuesday (TBD, if you are an international person applying can you let me know? I might see if we can do a reasonable timezone!)
With a focus on emotions, each session will revolve around a specific work chosen by me and then unpacked through the class. Though I will be giving writing assignments each session, the goal of each class is to nurture your own authentic voice—and less about finishing a piece of work. I want to facilitate an environment where we can have in-depth conversations on how to connect deeply with ourselves—so it becomes easier to locate and then eventually release exactly what wants to be said.
A few things:
Each person will also get a 30-minute zoom call with me where we can talk about writing or any question you might have for me.
In order to ensure everyone feels nurtured, spots are limited. I will be giving out one scholarship to a Black or Indigenous or POC as well as one to a CSA survivor.
There will be community guidelines we all agree to in the beginning, I believe safe spaces are nurtured—not inherent—and it’s my imperative to ensure a safe space considering some deep things could be ruptured.
Coming to class means showing up for everyone as well as yourself, and a true investment in community care, which prioritizes compassion and kindness at all times—as well as transparency to self and the class.
