Longing for an uninterrupted stretch of quiet productivity?
Writers’ Studio is BACK! Now that we have a space to fill with writers, we’re launching our first studio sessions in our new digs. This is your chance to check out our new space and to luxuriate in a quiet stretch of time sinking into a writing project that is tugging at your heart.
Here’s how it works:
We’ll meet at at our new storefront near Woodbine and Danforth. There will be a go-around at the start to set intentions and a go-around at the end to check in about how the time went. Between those two bookends, the time is yours to dream big, go deep and write wildly in a quiet, supportive, internet-free, distraction-free space surrounded by scribbling pens, delicious snacks and the quiet hum of focused writers.
One of our team of coaches will be there to facilitate the go-arounds, supply paper, pens, fresh gluten-free baking and tea, and provide her quiet, supportive presence. (She’ll be writing too!)
~ Have a project on the go, or a strong idea for one
~ Have trouble finding quiet time to focus and WRITE in the swoosh of everyday life
~ Enjoy the quiet company of kind souls.
~ Are self-directed and ready to just go
You can expect to leave the workshop with:
~ A quiet heart
~ The feeling of community
~ A lot of progress on a project of your choosing
~ A belly full of baking and warm drinks
This event won’t give you:
~ Instruction, facilitation or direction — those are up to you
~ Feedback on your writing — we’ll be sharing space, not stories
~ In-depth connections with other writers
~ Endless chances to check your Twitter feed — it’s an internet-free space

Participants are expected for the start and end of the session — this is not a drop-in event. (That said, you’re welcome to go for walks, grab food, explore the area during the quiet time.)

The money from our spring sessions will go into a Firefly scholarship fund for people who want to take our workshops, but can’t for financial reasons.
