Open January 2014 to new Divers – contact me with information about your project if you would like to be added to the waiting list.
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 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 provides community and encouragement as you go deep into your writing projects. 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 six-month initial commitment required; the group will remain closed for six-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.
Testimonials from Deep Divers:
“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/
