GoGirl Workshop 3: Eldercare: Who Cares?
This workshop is in development at this time, based on Marlee and her family’s experience caring for her father and mother, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Marlee has studied this topic, written numerous articles and edited several books on eldercare. Her desire is to help smooth and facilitate this often painful process for others: where to find help when you haven’t a clue, what works to mediate hopelessness into redemptive perspective, how to cope when quirky behaviors and circumstances get the best of you all.
GoGirl Workshops 4-7: Writers Who Rock
Writing the Sacred Questions, Finding Their Power to Change You
Our elemental quest as human beings is not just to know ourselves or to be true to ourselves, but to fall in love as if life itself were the lover. In this workshop you’ll learn to use the art of asking your own sacred questions as a way to identify what you want, where you need to go, and what’s been holding you back.
Writing as Pilgrimage, Travel Writing that Transcends Place
Our lives are a trip, within as well as without. To document the journey, writing will be your lens. The goal of this workshop is to enable you to find your path, write your passion, and create a pilgrimage volume—a legacy to your love affair with the world—even if you go no further than your own backyard.
Self-editing Your Own Work
The raw work: You’ve written several drafts, rewritten one of them, and rewritten again. Now, you want to take your work to the next phase. Learn to self-edit your manuscript so the agent or editor is pulled into the flow of both content and language. The goal of this workshop is to enable you to detail your final submission so it sails smoothly.
Learn to motivate and inspire yourself and your dreams using just a few minutes a day. Set yourself on a journey to clarify your dreams and reach them by reaching deeper within yourself. By exercising the power of your own imagination and the magic of writing, you can change the way you think—and change your life, creating your own experience.
