Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have payment plans available?
Absolutely. You can divide your payment into two. One when you register and the second payment the week before the workshop.
Will I come out with a finished piece of writing?
The intention of Tending the Writer’s Flame is to connect you to your writing in new, soulful ways. You likely won’t complete a large piece of writing during workshop time, but could work on something over the weekend in the space between sessions. You will likely come out feeling more integrated and intuitive in your writing practice.
Will we be sharing our writing?
I'm an experienced writer. Is this just for beginners?
As with any relationship, our relationship to our creative path and art-forms require tending, deep listening, and food for inspiration. Experienced and beginning writers are welcome.
What if there is a ritual or practice that I don't want to take part in?
