Janell Moon, MA
Wednesday night support group meets in San Francisco (Noe Valley) from 7-9 pm for writers who want to get going on their writing now and over the holidays.. We meet twice a month in January and then once a month after the first four sessions when we are clear about our motivational styles and goals. Peer support will be set up during this time. Discounted counseling is available before the group starts after a free consultation phone call. Phone services available to all writers.
Whether you’ve always written and published or want to write more, you will find that working with structure keeps you on track. Explore your life through memoir,fiction and creative nonfiction and receive support from a well-published author and creativity counselor. Have a place to showcase your writing and receive constructive positive critiquing. After January and February will be meet once a month at my Noe Valley office to check in with the group and share.
We start by discussing any hints you have for overcoming creative blocks such as over zealous inner critic, lack of time for yourself, fear of failure, depression, getting ideas down, disorganization, carving out time, hesitant to be a beginner and/or lack of focus.
- We do an exercise to find out what will motivate you to keep writing.
- We share our writing with the supportive group.
- We fashion goals for what we know about ourselves and learn from the group.
- We assign peer coaches to check in with you and your goals on a twice weekly basic or as often as you’d like.
A good group to join for support if you find that creative work isolates you or if you just want to meet other writers and hear their process. As the work continues we will share publishing sources with each other.
$40.00 a session. You receive a phone call from Janell when you contact her. You have until January 8th to get started and have something to share. Individual discounted counseling is available to writers only during this time.
