Dear Writers and Future Writers
Jenn and I have some exciting news to share and we’re tickled pink to do it. (And if like me, that cliché leaves you scratching your head and visualizing something rash-like so be it. Regardless, we’re very happy about what’s coming).
You’ve probably noticed we’ve been dormant for a while. I’ve been busy with my yoga business and freelance writing, and Jenn has taken on a new career in book-keeping along with her work for Jackson Yoga and parenting two beautiful girls. Although we had grand plans, the sad truth is that we’ve had too many balls to juggle, and the WFC ball rolled under the couch. We knew it was getting dusty under there, but we just couldn’t get around to it.
About two months ago, my friend Vicki Pinkerton (who is a great writer, life-coach, AWA-Certified writing instructor and all-around creative role-model) mentioned that she would like to expand her writing business to include day-long retreats. She’s been teaching at libraries, colleges and online for years, and decided that it’s time to try hosting her own events. And then I had this epiphany. We have a languishing website, a facebook page, and a mailing list, and she has the experience, enthusiasm and Vicki-ness that can pick up WFC, dust it off and rebuild it into the thriving and supportive community we know it can be. So now Jenn and I are looking forward to attending her WFC retreats as participants rather than hosts.
Vicki’s place is not far from our previous location. She lives on a rural property just south of Mount Albert, which includes a beautiful labyrinth in the back yard. She’s got a great sense of humour, and her style of teaching and workshop format will be the same as what you’re accustomed to.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be updating the website to reflect the changeover and Vicki will be sending out news about workshops and events to this list. If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, no problem! Simply click on the unsubscribe button below. But if I were you I’d give Vicki a chance to win your heart. She’s a lot of fun, and a great birth-coach when it comes to writing or other creative projects. So whether you’re dreaming of writing a novel, or just having a day to journal, day-dream and recharge, Vicki will be offering a safe and nurturing space to help you bring those plans to life.
All the best to you and your writing dreams,
Jenn and Elaine
