Writing Wild

My Friend T.J. Burns is running a free memoir writing course online. It's got a Pagan flavour to it, but anyone can join in.

Starting 8th September 2014, you can find the full information here, along with a short piece by T.J. about why memoir writing is so important. To join in, simply REGISTER ONLINE. There's also a dedicated Facebook group where you can connect with other memoirists.

Writing Wild: Crafting the Pagan Memoir was created especially for new writers and non-writers who identify with an earth-based spiritual path. T.J. combines writing assignments and prompts with suggestions for personal ritual, guided meditations and other exercises to help budding memoirists connect with their written story on a deeper level.  There are many books available on the craft of memoir writing, but Writing Wild is unique; it’s practical, approachable and magical. Do you have to be a Pagan to write a Pagan memoir? No, but it can’t hurt.  
Excerpt: Tell me where the road has taken you and what you ran to or from. Tell me what you’ve learned. Share your wisdom because you have some, and the world sorely needs it. Give birth to your spiritual memoir because it may be the seed from which someone else’s healing is born. Write with wild abandon, secured in the center of your own sacred circle.

Happy journaling!
