Groups are my thing!
I've been facilitating groups since 1989 beginning with my first writing group (Mothers Who Write) which I started in Minneapolis, MN. I placed a tiny ad in the newsletter for The Loft (Minneapolis's awesome community of writers) promoting my group. The response was overwhelming! Within a few days, I received calls from over 40 moms who were ecstatic that I was forming such a group! We met twice a month for a year. I moved back to NJ and started a similar group. That group grew into 10 groups and the name changed to Women Who Write. I was in LOVE! Groups became my thing. I started a monthly discussion group for women that lasted a few years called Her Time and then had a three-year run with a hugely successful monthly writers salon that was sponsored by the local library. From there came more groups and then classes, workshops, retreats and training. I had found a way to balance the solitude of writing with the community love fest of the group experience.
Since I'm currently living in Asheville, NC, I have a number of Meetup Groups and Coaching Groups planned for 2017. Details coming soon!
