Nature of Journaling

~ A Journal Writing Workshop ~

During this full day workshop, I will lead participants through various methods for creative journaling and show how regular journaling can help us discover the deeper stories in life. As a writer, it is important to know who you are and during this workshop, you will learn different ways of seeing yourself.

In a relaxed, informal setting, you’ll practice techniques to enliven memory, capture emotion and find meaning in your life experiences.

Good journaling is a writing tool that boosts the creative flow and helps you harvest honest details from your own life to colour your writing…no matter what genre you prefer to write.

Through writing and sharing and discovering our storytelling abilities together, participants will leave feeling inspired and more confident about putting words on the page.

This is a day just for you and your creative soul.

Who Should Take this Workshop

The workshop is suitable for those who do not currently journal, as well as those who have been putting their thoughts on the page for some time. No experience is necessary.

Exercises are fashioned to encourage deep thought and reflection. Beginning writers, diarists and journal writers, as well as seasoned writers will benefit from the practice, techniques and interaction with others.  It can also benefit writers who want to learn techniques for capturing the details necessary for memoir and personal essays.
