Hey there fabulous writer. Are you looking for some company and support for the summer that won’t break the bank or overload you with HOMEWORK?
I’ve decided I want to offer up something for the next few months that will be LIGHT and yet LOVELY.
I’ve been loving up the Writing Circles that I’ve been running for the last few years.
It started during the pandemic when The Writers’ Union of Canada put out a call for volunteers to run online Writer’s Groups. Based on the co-working I had done with Jen Louden in her fabulous online community The OASIS, I came up with a plan to offer a weekly 90 minute writing session that includes a bit of inspiration, a short meditation, writing sprints and a bit of social time. We call ourselves the Monday Muses, and have been going strong since January 3rd of 2021.
In January of 2022, I began the first Soul Stories Fiction Circle with four other writers. We started with a 12 week frame – meeting once a week to write and every 2 weeks to chat about craft and the writing life. We are now on our second round and … oh man, I LOVE THESE WOMEN! I love the intimacy of our small group, where we can really get to know each other and support each other. I love that I am part of the circle, writing alongside these fierce, funny, fabulous writers.
I created Soul Stories, as a way for me to walk alongside other writers for a time as they bring their stories to the world. The Writing Circles are a great way to this. I also offer more intense things, like full on developmental edits and one-on-one mentoring. But there is a real magic in just… coming together to WRITE. We aim to keep our cameras on (mostly) and there is something about seeing others working that inspires us and helps us hold focus. There is also a nice accountability factor as you get to know the other writers who show up each week.
There is POWER in community.
This summer, I am offering a new writing circle that is open to all writers. I’m calling it Write With Pam.
I’ve also created a straightforward mentorship program that you can buy into monthly called Walk with Pam.
I strive to create a space of wonder and devotion in my circles and one-on-one mentorships. A place where you will feel safe and supported, heard and understood, as well as challenged so that you can grow and stretch as a writer and take your work to the next level. You will also meet some hella-groovy people if you go the Circle route.
If this appeals at all, pop over HERE and check out my summer offerings.
Maybe we can spend some time scribbling together this summer.
Go easy ~p
Multi-genre collections of stories where we are the heroes and the stars!
