Let's gather. Let's connect. Let's write. From the safety of our own homes. 


Join me at the virtual table for some True Nature Writing

Sign up for a short set of classes before the summer break.  

Online Classes

As we adapt to the ups and downs of our ongoing but changing pandemic lives, and the particulars of the places we live, we may find ourselves a bit wobbly. 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. Through poetry, creative magic, and sharing, we'll mine our truths and our stories. We'll feel connected - to nature, to each other, and to our own resilience and vitality.

In-Person Classes  

In-person classes are cancelled until further notice. Let's gather online instead. But...


Once it's safe to do so, and weather allows, local True Nature Writing students will have the option of attending in-person classes. We’ll sit together, outdoors and safely distanced. Our writing will be inspired by the nature around us, and by one another. Bring a notebook and pen, and enjoy being with a small group of supportive, interesting and like-minded people as we bring alive our stories and our creativity, and ourselves. Classes will be held in my yard in Hillsdale, Regina, and perhaps in some other outdoor locations. Watch this space for updates. 

​In-person classes are limited to 8 participants.
