Welcome to She Howls! A monthly online Women's Writing Circle exploring our wild voices, the voices that inhabit the deepest places within us, that quietly wait until we are ready to unleash them through paper and pen.
We are all poetic beings. Prepare to be empowered. It's time to grab your pens and howl! (See 'How to join in' below for sign-up details).
What we'll do:
In the first She Howls Circle of 2019 we will create a ‘Wild Blessing’ to infuse our year with wonder and possibility, a blessing to carry us through the tough times too. John O’ Donahue says,
“To believe in blessing is to believe that our being here, our very presence in the world, is itself the first gift, the primal blessing.” (from Benedictus: A Book of Blessings)
In the last days of my father’s life, he gave me a ‘blessing’. I can still feel it buzzing in my being, giving me strength and hope. Blessings are profound and astonishing. We will be retrieving this lost art in our own unique way. No spiritual or religious beliefs are needed to enjoy the beauty of creating your own blessing.
I'll encourage you to be intuitive when writing, let go of your inner critic and write freely, share your words and be heard by others, without judgment or criticism. There will be an opportunity to share your creations during the session but there is no obligation to do so.
My intention is that this space will encourage confidence, courage and compassion as we discover our unique and wild voice through writing. These sessions are not about literary skill or grammatical correctness – they are about freeing our inner writer, our inner voice. Punctuation and correct spelling are optional! Suitable for those new to writing/poetry and for experienced writers too.
We'll gather together online via Zoom where we can create quietly and howl loudly.
