I help people write the words they want to write through cozy workshops in my home, gorgeous retreats around Ontario, and meaningful one-on-one conversations. My latest project is an internet-based summer class called Coming Home to Writing– a place to touch base, ask the big questions, and get some work done. I love to work with creatively tentative people who don’t call themselves writers (yet), but know they have magic inside them.
I arrived at Tammy’s office unfocused and overwhelmed. I wanted to run writing workshops – the desire was electric and ferocious. I knew I had to do this work, but I was full of fear and had no idea where to start. Tammy helped me to face the biggest blocks to my dream and to quickly diffuse them. Each time we met, I left with more clarity, grace and direction. By the end of the season, I had run my first workshop. By the end of the year, I had quit my job and was working on a business name, a website, and a “brand”. Without even planning to, I’d gone from being a tentative, part-time facilitator to being a full-fledged business owner.
Today I run writing workshops year-round, retreats in the summer and e-classes on the side. I also work one-on-one with people who are stuck on their creative paths. I’m amazed at how rich, challenging and deeply rewarding this work is – it’s hard to imagine my life without it.
Thank you Tammy, Creating Realities, and all the beautiful people who have come to my table to write.
