Travelling the Deep

A Journey to the Heart of Being

Begins October 31, 2016

A seven week writing adventure to the very center of your storytelling self, Travelling the Deep is a journey to mirror the Dark Time -- the space of the year between Samhain (Halloween) and Yule (Winter Solstice). From our place here in this realm we will travel below the skin, sinking our teeth into the meaty flesh of a writing project. Using a model of concentric rings, the process takes us through recognizing the next big project, finding our personal rhythm in writing, taking time to rest and practice self-care, and deeper until we reach the very essence -- the heartbeat -- of the words that flow through us. 

Elements of the class

Each week will follow a basic structure:

  • Monday will introduce the theme for the week, including a video lesson from me and some prompts to get you started in your writing.
  • Wednesday will feature writing by other authors that not only speaks to the week's theme but also a major element of the course as a whole.
  • Friday brings the weekend project -- a structured assignment to work on over the next two or three days that brings you deeper into your manuscript.
  • Sunday shares a photo and writing prompt to bridge the theme from the previous week with the next layer of our journey.
