This workgroup is designed for those who have delved into (or are ready to commit to) the deep dive of a large* writing project:
- a novel;
- poetry, story or essay collection;
- play or screenplay;
- daily blogging;
- preparing work for publication;
- or any other long-term writing project.
Though writing is a solitary pursuit, no writer has ever completed a long work alone!
Divers will meet three times per month for writing exercises, project check-in and accountability, manuscript feedback, coaching and peer support. This group can help you meet your writing goal, and provide community and encouragement as you go deep into a writing project. This is necessary work you’re doing: give yourself all the tools and support you need.
* “large” is relative — whatever your writing project is, if you want support and accountability and regular connection around that work, we would love to have you!
Workshop fees: This is an ongoing group; the fee is $200/month, with a three-month initial commitment required; the group will remain closed for three-month cycles, then will open at the end of those cycles for the possible addition of new members. Dive Deep is limited to 6 members at a time.
(This may shift to a six month cycle, so that we can better build and hold community with one another.)
Testimonials about Dive Deep:
“Dive Deep transformed and continues to impact the landscape of my life. My manuscript broke through boundaries, and I learned pride and confidence with regard to my craft. Now, as I travel along, I am supported by the momentum of the Divers Deep. My faith is in my fellow writers — Across genres, the pages I read in Dive Deep are food. Jen, anyway, is magic. So is the rhythm of meeting every ten days — it keeps one immersed, and the google group is breath under water. I challenge you to drop into your writer’s self. Your will be held. You and your words will grow.” ~ Yisraela Tzviah Emily “Emma” Cohen http://www.yisraelatzviah.com/
