So you have some stories to tell…
That’s why you’re here. You might be part-way through a project and stuck or you might be following an instinct, a feeling deep in your body that it’s time to connect to the creative freedom you used to know. You’re nervous — reconnecting to your creative life feels both necessary and overwhelming.
We get that. We’ve totally been there. You’re safe here. No matter what your background is, no matter who you love or vote for or worship, no matter what accent you speak with or genre you’re drawn to, you’re safe here.
We believe that everyone has stories to tell and unique writing voices to tell them with, but that somewhere along the road, we lose faith. We lose faith that our stories are important, we lose faith that we’re talented enough to tell them. Deep in our bodies, we forget how good it feels, and how much it matters.
Here at Firefly we use workshops, coaching, online classes and writing retreats to help people gently come back to their voices and tell their stories. This is our mission, our passion and our wish for you.
For a quick feel for what it feels like to write with us, check out our free video writing prompts. You’ll get to do some short writes with Firefly founder & writing coach Chris, and you’ll have the chance to share your writing on the site, joining your voice to others’.
When you’re ready to go a little deeper, Coming Home to Writing is the place to start. It’s an online class you can do in your PJ’s from your home. You’ll dive into your material, Firefly-style, with lots of laughter, inspiration and productivity. If you’re lucky enough to live in Toronto, you can also check out our in-house class schedule, or our upcoming retreats. If you’re looking for a more intensive experience, look into our writing coaching packages. These are where we do our deepest, most intimate work.
We are a team of seven diverse women — six writing coaches and an office manager — who love city parks, new journals, home-cooked meals and kindness. You can get to know us here. We’d love to get to know you, so drop us a note, or join our mailing list to keep in contact.
We’re glad you’re here. We believe that it’s important. We want to help you step into the amazing power of your creative self, one word at a time.
