This workshop is designed for those of us who are ready to allow our passions to come alive and enter into a flow state of mind. Whether you’re looking to start a blog, 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.
We’ll enjoy participating in guided writing activities and receive feedback from a group of international women writers.
During the workshop we will:
- Participate in four interactive writing activities to get our creativity flowing.
- Delve into our imagination through writing.
- Discover what’s blocking us and tap into our innate ability to express ourselves.
- Share our writing with a community of international women writers.
After completing Pink Pangea 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.
Date: February 13, 2021

Pink Pangea Workshop Reviews
“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
“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
“Thanks for the thought-provoking writing workshop today! I needed to be reminded that to be a writer….we have to write, then write some more. Loved it!” – Sue G. Sparling Collins
“After finishing the workshop, I felt a sense of purpose and drive, as I knew the immediate steps I had to take to make my blog successful. A week later, that feeling has not faded in the slightest.”— Sydney Paulsen
