What is River Writing?

A writing practice and a courage class. We keep our pens moving on the page as we write together with abandon, with no intention of making it good. Shamelessly shunning spelling and syntax, we invite words to flow unobstructed from a river of inner-narrative. After we write, we read to each other without preface or apology. No caveats. No comments. We listen to each other without offering praise or criticism.

Why Would I Dare it? 

To find and foster your voice. To practice showing up imperfectly. To practice speaking without apology.  Because your particular witness has never been more needed in the world. Because your details matter. Because you never know who your story is for. River Writing is also a vessel for growing connection, compassion and kindness. Come to connect, to create more kindness.

Who is it For? 

You probably, since you're still reading. Especially if you often wish you were writing, but don't often write. You don't need to consider youself a writer, all you need is pen and paper, and just enough courage to get here. I offer a warm and welcoming table. We’ll write by hand. Your inner-critic is kindly invited to stay home.
