The Art of Writing, FREE Online Writing Workshop
When listening to The Art of Writing Free online writing workshop, we recommend participating in all writing activities along with the group. Have a pen and paper handy and enjoy! The first 3 minutes are instructions for the participants who where participating when the workshop was recorded — if you’re in a hurry, feel free to fast forward.*
This workshop is designed for writers who are ready to share our story, uncover what we really want to say, and feel proud of our work. Getting to the root of what we’re trying to write can be difficult, and often it’s not clear where to start and where to end. Everyone has a story to tell, and this workshop will help us articulate our experiences through writing.
During the Art of Writing free online writing workshop we will:
-Participate in four activities designed to open our writing and reveal the stories we yearn to tell
-Delve into our imagination to uncover key events from our pasts
-Share our writing with a community of women writers
-Create a plan for writing our stories
After completing workshops, women have written for major publications, launched their own blogs, or continued to write in their journals. Others have simply enjoyed trying something new.

“I came out of it a different person than I went in…[Jaclyn] made us linger in our discomfort long enough to compel us to make a change. In fact, she had to relinquish control in order for it to be a catalyst. That’s a mark of a great teacher.” – Stephen Elliot
“The workshop provided a safe and inspiring space to think about my own writing, and hear from other travelers and writers. I came away with some concrete tools, and an idea or two for future pieces!” – Rachel Romesburg Rice
“I love traveling. And I love writing. So when a friend told me about the Pink Pangea writing workshop, I went right away. And it opened a new sphere of writing for me.” – Britta Kollberg
