We’re going to get On The Write Trek, together! Virtually. You, in your little corner of the world and me in mine here in the magical land of the pyramids — hooked up by that modern marvel called Zoom (the new school version of Skype. “New & improved!”). It’s a way to connect our muses together for an hour and a half each week, diving deep and writing together.
On The Write Trek sessions consist of a series of timed writings, a process that we use to tell our stories with and to uncover the themes we want to write about.
With writing prompts in varying spans of minutes, we will write as fast as we can, our pens never leaving the page. By writing so quickly we are able to push past our inner critic and ego, and through all the ways that keep us trapped in self-editing.
This pushes us into a less self conscious, a looser groove, where, if we’re lucky, we will cruise into the fertile imagination that lingers within each of us, bringing out our stories that have been waiting to be brought to life.
After we write, we each read our work aloud. We don’t critique, we just listen and give loving support. We do this at a minimum of three times within each session. This technique, while very therapeutic, is also a wonderful way to jumpstart any good writing project because it helps you get to the chewy nougat of what your muse is dying to say.
Don’t stress it either. I keep groups purposefully small, with no more than 6 peeps, so as to create a foundation for experiencing SAFETY, COMFORT AND INTIMACY in the process.

Mixed content in a writing group creates a fertile, playful environment for all participants. For seasoned writers, it goes further by EXPANDING YOUR TOOLBOX for greater writing.
For example, if you predominantly write memoir, you may GROW MORE WILLING TO EXPERIMENT with dialogue, fiction, and personal process when you hear others enjoy forays into character, dialogue or the interior realms, and vice versa.
On The Write Trek sessions invite and encourage writing in its various forms. Exercises are given that DEVELOP NARRATIVE SKILLS— using dialogue, point of view, memoir, fantasy and so on.
For acceptance into a group, members should have a genuine desire to write, a willingness to stretch, a thoughtful respect for the group, and to be ready to have some fun! Whether a complete amateur, just wanting to do something fun, or a seasoned pro, immersive writing offers something for everyone!
Simply choose your selected group day/time and complete your registration. That’s it! Just get ready for some fun and insightful exploration together!
Please be rest assured that we respect confidentiality within the group and that only positive responses are offered. Our uncensored stream-of-consciousness writing done in On The Write Trek sessions deserves to be met with kindness and encouragement. Editing comments and critiques are for a different stage in the process that is not done in these sessions. It is important that each person reads their writing aloud as this helps displace the harsh inner critic that holds our best works back. And you’re not alone; everyone, including myself, will be participating fully, writing and reading with the group.
6 weeks of 1.5-hour LIVE online sessions of creative immersive writing. Your choice of group class dates/times.
