Words have always been magical and nourishing for me, perhaps because some of my fondest memories involve books. I’d want to jump inside of them and inhabit the world the authors were painting with the gorgeous words spilling from their bodies.
It was in those moments that vivid worlds would open for me, filled with characters and animals and love stories and lands.
We can write from the ashes of our grief, and we can write from the pouring of our rain.
When we write creatively, the goal is to FEEL so our readers can feel. This is energy and this is sacred. In my writing sessions I focus on unraveling the old blocks and finding flow and freedom again inside of this incredible world of creation.
I also believe in friends and community. I believe in SHARING your work and in the support offered through that.
Creation is MESSY. It involves grief and bliss and wonder and aching, and we will hold each other through this.
Whether you’re ready to post poetry or your soul desires a safe place and community to create in, I am so happy to offer Ashes and Rain: a 10 week intensive SUMMER VERSION for just a handful of students to explore sacred, poetic, riveting type of writing in a small container of amazing people dedicated to furthering their writing practice and flow state inside of a safe, caring community made of fire and water and mostly, of LOVE.
Why take an immersion?
Writing is an ongoing practice. It is showing up to the page. It is dedication. It is trust. My immersions are like retreats in the way that we get to know the group of people on a deep level and watch each other grow through our work as we travel the world of language together.
Life is too short to not write.
To not share your work.
To not touch the ecstasy of true flow state.
To not create.
To not connect with others doing the same.
This is not a school. This is not a course. This is a mentorship to work closely with Victoria and a group of wonderful people on the same path.
This is a 10 week program with a limited capacity of students per session.
This intimacy allows me to work closely with each participant to best support your writing journey, and help you to craft your own style of writing through guided visual prompts.
I will have weekly themes and be holding zoom sessions every Tuesday evening at 5 pm central time and Sunday morning at 11 am central time and you will pick which of the two you’d like to go to each week.
We will also have a private facebook group where we can share our work.
Space is extremely limited and this will fill up fast.
