Courage: from Latin cor ‘heart’.

Courage takes many forms. We struggle with it, in part, because it interrupts our comfort zones. Our routines. Our status quo. 

What have your acts of courage looked like? What will they look like in the future? Together, we’ll explore what courage has been – and will be, for us. 

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
– Maya Angelou

During the online workshop we will: 

  • Participate in four transformative writing activities designed to explore our own capacity to be courageous 
  • Uncover insights from past and present experiences
  • Share our writing with a community of international women writers

After completing Pink Pangea workshops, participants have written for major publications, launched their own blogs, or continued to write in their journals. Others have simply enjoyed trying something new. All participants will receive a recording of the workshop.

Courage: A Writing Workshop

Workshop Reviews

“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

“This workshop helped me and lit an inner flame, especially as a writer whose passion lies in writing memoirs. Not only did I call both of my grandmothers after this workshop to ask them about life in their 20s, but I took an honest look at myself as my 20s are shortly coming to an end. Have I done enough, have I made my imprint on the world as a woman writer? Are there more stories I have to tell? Thank you, Pink Pangea, for another eye (and heart) opening writing workshop.” — Raquel Reyes

“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
