“When we avoid our creativity, we avoid ourselves.
When we meet our creativity, we meet ourselves.”
The Expressed Writing Workshop is designed for those of us who love to write, express ourselves in new ways, and are ready to get our stories down on paper. In this workshop, we will partake in four transformative activities that will get our creative juices flowing. Whether you’re looking to write an article, pen a memoir, or simply try something new, this workshop will help you open the door and surprise yourself by the magic that you’re holding within.
During the Expressed Writing Workshop, we will:
- Unlock our creativity through four innovative writing activities
- Participate in two writing activities designed to open our imagination
- Learn basic tools to get our creative juices flowing
- Discover what’s blocking us and tap into our innate ability to express ourselves
- Process our progress through a guided writing assignment
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
