The most significant creation born of writing is the person the writer becomes for having written. With intention, a community can tend both the literary creation and what’s coming alive inside the creators. In this facilitated small group modeled after spiritual direction groups and Quaker clearness committees, the circle will magnify our listening and hold us accountable to the creative source. Unlike traditional writing groups which focus exclusively on the text, we will attend the aliveness moving within both writer and text. We create our best work when our inner transformation receives the support of others.
The Writer’s Circle is for those who write regularly, are committed to their projects, and are ready to share their work with others. Because of the group’s small size, facilitator Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew will select participants based on individual readiness and the overall makeup of the group.
