Online Classes

 

As we navigate the ups and downs of our lives, and the joys and challenges of our everyday, it can be difficult to stay in touch with what matters most. A writing practice is a great way to tap into our own truth, and the beautiful solid ground beneath our feet. Join me around the virtual writing table, and we'll write. Inspired by poetry, rich prose and nature, and fuelled by the creative magic that happens in a supportive group, we'll write. We'll mine our truths and our stories. We'll feel connected - to nature, to each other, and to our own resilience and vitality. Click here for the full description of True Nature Writing.

Multi-week fall sessions:

Autumn is a beautiful time of year. So much colour and beauty and change to pay attention to. Fall is also a time to re-commit to our projects, and the creative work that has been calling. Join me each week and settle into a regular writing practice. Inspired by poetry and the nature around us, we'll write, we'll notice, we'll tune into ourselves and the beauty of our world as the season progresses. In each Ninety-Minute Zoom session, we gather, do a short warm-up, then write three times and share our writing. You'll come away with a sense of vitality and gratitude, growing confidence in your written voice, and lots of writing in your notebook.

Collaborations and Custom Classes  

I'm happy to bring True Nature Writing to you. I can be a guest at your writing or book club, your workplace staff retreat or professional development day, or a gathering of friends. Via zoom or in-person. Drop me an email and let's see if we can make something work.

 

I also love to collaborate with other programs and teachers. If you teach yoga, mindfulness, photography, visual art, music, outdoor education, to name a few, and feel that True Nature Writing might benefit your students, let's talk! 

 

True Nature Writing is part of the Songs4Nature Program, co-ordinated by the Royal Sask Museum. Stay tuned for the next songwriting camp, to be held in spring of 2023. In the meantime, have a listen to some of the music that has been created at these camps: https://songs4nature.bandcamp.com
