I have had many requests to bring back my journaling workshops. Thank you all for your interest and support! Starting a journal is a great way to start a new year!
The just write! journaling workshop is 5 weeks of writing, self-examination, ah-ha’s and fun. The exercises are designed to get you to dig deep and remove your defenses around getting to know yourself. You will also be able to use these exercises over and over again, because as your awareness changes, your responses will change.
Week 1 – An Unusual Self-Portrait
Week 2 – The Power of Unsent Letters
Week 3 – Gratitude Journal
Week 4 – Images as Journal Prompts
Week 5 – Wrap-up and the Journal Jar
just write! is for newbies or experienced journalers. I will send out an Intro and Guidelines first, then one assignment comes per week. You have an entire week to respond, and I will give you feedback on how deep you are going, what you might want to look at on top of what you have already seen, how you could push your writing in a different way, or whatever else I might see that can help you get the most out of your journaling. Due to time constraints, I can only email you twice per lesson with feedback, so if you have questions, please be focused with them.
This is a one-on-one workshop. You will interact with only me. I’ll be able to give you the attention you need to move forward in your journey of self-discovery!
This is also ONGOING. You can sign up any time. There is no set class time or group to join. Once your payment clears, you will be getting lessons!
On top of that, you will receive The Just Write Journal, a 50 page blank journal I created from my own writing exercises, photos, journals and teaching experience. It is a PDF you can print out and write on. There is one blank page to print over and over if you need more space than what is provided. The Just Write Journal is a $10 value, but it is free with this class! Here are a few of the exercises:
Define and describe freedom.
What is your attitude towards money? Do you live to work or work to live? Is money full of love or guilt?
What does ‘vulnerable’ feel like?
Go for a walk, and bring something back. Write about it in depth.
Once, I painfully wanted….
Payment is through PayPal. If you need to pay with check or money order, email me, and we can make other arrangements. As soon as I see your payment has cleared, I will send the first lessons! I look forward to working with you!
The Just Write Journal, 50 pages of inspiration!

My qualifications for heading these classes are a lifetime of writing, almost 40 years of journaling, training as a life coach, training as a creativity coach, and teaching and taking many classes about creativity and journaling. I feel fortunate that I have so much experience to draw from for you!
I love teaching these workshops, because I explore new facets myself each time I offer them. When you open up about yourself, I share my life experiences, revelations and lessons. By spending time with you, I explore myself and grow. I am the facilitator; you are the guide of your journey. I am grateful that I have been able to continue mine each time I facilitate this class.
I look forward to working with you! Starting a journal is a great way to start a new year!
