The Blank Page Writing Workshops A place to be smart and be heard.
Do you feel like you can't hear your thoughts over the voices of your children? Have you always been interested in writing, but haven't had the chance to try it? All of us have a voice--and you have adult, educated thoughts that just aren't getting heard with the demands of life.
The Blank Page Workshops are on-line writing workshops--not for "writers"--but for women just like you! Armed with experience, an MFA, a 4 year-old and a 4 month-old for perspective, Christin will take you back into a world where your stories are worth hearing and your thoughts worth being considered by your peers. Here you will find:
· support for every stage of the writing process
· personal and educated feedback on all of your writing
· no commitments of time or place--you write when you can, wherever you want
· the opportunity to turn your thoughts into a real work of art, and maybe even a published piece of writing
Join a Blank Page Writing Workshop today--it's a place to be smart and be heard! Contact Christin.
"I used to love writing, but once I entered the quiet busy-ness of "adult life with child" it just seemed like one more thing that took my time and made me feel like no one saw my effort. This writing seminar has allowed me to write--in small time chunks I can manage--for a wonderful audience of my peers whose company I can sneak away to at any time of day, right from my own living room. The group feedback lets me see which thoughts I have that are shared by others, and Christin's feedback has allowed me to learn about writing in a way I haven't experienced since college. There is no fear of judgment, it is like finally having a conversation with an old friend . . . myself!"

“I’ve never written anything, never taken any writing classes, or had any writing experience whatsoever. I just love to write and wanted to give it a try. The workshop has been fantastic! It’s low key, supportive and self directed. You put in the amount of time that’s reasonable for you, and since it’s all online, it works with any schedule. It’s given me enough structure to feel accountable to writing something regularly, without being a burden or feeling unmanageable. I’ve never experienced getting feedback on my writing, so I was pretty worried about that. But the whole workshop is designed to help you find your strengths as a writer, and it’s all positive, gentle and encouraging. I have learned a lot about my own writing, and Christin is a really insightful and thoughtful teacher and coach. When I signed up, I was thinking mostly in terms of the writing I would be doing – the unexpected thrill was to get a chance to read other writers’ work, respond to it, and share my writing with them. Honestly I can’t say enough good things about the workshop!”
