“Be brave. Remember that bravery is not the lack of fear but the ability to move forward in spite of fear.”
Why is fear so impactful?
We all have fears. Most of them are rooted in past experiences. It’s natural for us to try to avoid even thinking about them. The problem is, when we avoid them, they persist.
Join us for a live Zoom writing workshop and we’ll look directly at our fears — and see what’s on the other side.
During this workshop we will:
- Clarify our fears through guided writing activities
- Explore where we are holding fear
- Uncover insights about our past and present experiences
- Create a new vision of what’s next
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. All participants will receive a recording of the workshop.

“As I am on this intense but fulfilling journey of self-discovery, finding my soul’s purpose in life has led me to travel writing, as I am a life-long travel enthusiast. Fortunately, this journey has also led me to Pink Pangea. When I saw the information for the workshop titled “A Woman’s Worth”, I instantly knew I had to register.” — Jen Lucas
“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
This workshop will be facilitated by Co-Founder Jaclyn Mishal. Read testimonials from past workshop participants here.
