Very rarely do you hear someone say they wrote something down and felt worse.

- Naomi Shihab Nye

After 3 years of committed MY WORD writing groups, it’s time to shake things up a bit. As many of us return to wandering the world again this summer, Lori has scheduled open sessions for anyone who wants to drop in. Whether you join us from the Grand Canyon, the south of France or your own living room, our writing practice is a way to be truthful, messy, and intimate with yourself & others. New vistas with different folks each week can make our gatherings all the more juicy.

For people who have been writing online with Lori for years, this may be a chance to see writing friends that you have met along the way. For first timers, the format is very simple. Lori will offer a prompt, a quote, a poem, or something else to spark your pens. We write for awhile and then read to each other.


Feel free to come anytime you can, but always come as you are. Newcomers welcome.
