At the end of the eight weeks, you'll come away from this workshop with: 

  • Pages and pages of fresh, new writing that's all your own.

  • A deeper sense of your authentic writing voice.

  • Stronger skills in the craft of writing, forged through positive feedback in a safe environment-- no red pen here!

  • A smile on your face and a skip in your step.

What people are saying:

“I thought I would have some fun writing. I did not expect to drive home every week in a stunned state, on the verge of weeping with gratitude that creative writing is allowed in my life, as a goddamn career — legitimately! Holy f***k! I am alive!

— Colleen, Birds of a Feather Fall 2018

“I loved gathering together every week for ‘writing church.’ It was a safe place to take risks and explore my creative side. I enjoyed the writing prompts and weekly take-home challenges to keep me going throughout the week.”

— Susan, Birds of a Feather Fall 2018

“Jaclyn is amazing. She creates a sacred writing space.”

— Pashana, Birds of a Feather Fall 2018

“This was exactly what I was hoping for — a place with kind, intelligent, engaged people in a comfy space. Jaclyn provides prompts to help facilitate creative inspiration, and she does it really well! She has a gentle, inclusive approach to helping you bring out the writer in you. Highly recommend this course.

— Brigitte, Birds of a Feather Fall 2018
