The Healing Art of Journaling
I’ve always known that writers work with magic. What else could account for words that kept me turning pages and devouring stories? They had to be magic if they could create a poem with the power to make me weep, or an article that could get me off my chair and inspire me to jump into something new. Now that I am a writer, I understand that putting pen to paper or cutting out words and moving them around really is magic. For me, the process of writing holds that enchantment and the power to transform. Join me for five Tuesday mornings to ignite your neon words, center yourself, and discover on the page. Generate material for poetry, memoir, and essay while you feed your craft and find inspiration through a variety of prompts and techniques that offer self-illumination, validation, and the power to heal.

Enjoyed the opportunity to share my passion in this new blog!
Thanks Liz Parrott and Kid Lit About Politics for sharing books that help kids better understand the world around them…and just maybe inspire them to engage.
What an honor for Journey of Dreams to be featured on Vamos a Leer.
Oswego’s Living Writer Series was an honor–fun to prepare and present.
Thanks again to Zara Larsen of the Larsen Group for inviting me to share about my work.
Looking forward to working towards Owl & Panther’s show at the Tucson Museum of Art this summer and Word Journeys “Good Choices” semester.
