Musing to Fruition: A ‘Write Now!’ Series for Creatives of all Persuasions

I try to shake loose my mind, so something fresh can fall out… This process acts like a sifter – sand falls through and bright nuggets come to light.

‘Voice Quest’ Online

I realized with a shock that in the process of severing ties with my body I had lost my voice, my knowledge of true self. And I wanted it back.

Joanna Tebbs Young

I am very excited to announce that I will be offering a 6-week version of my workshop, “Voice Quest: Writing Your Self Home” online through the Transformative Language Arts Network, November 4 – December 14. Details and Registration is here:

With your pen as your worthy stead, begin a journey into the known that is unknown and the unknown that is known. To the answers that lie within the mystery of the questions. On the rocky paths, over the smooth oceans, into the dark forests, and onto the sun-lit meadows of your unconscious, back to the home of your body-mind where you will find your true voice: Your Self.

Un(b)Lock your Creativity: Expressive Writing as a Key

“Thanks to this workshop I was able to, not only visualize my completed manuscript, but actually finish it!” – R.C.

“Joanna’s Creativity Workshop facilitates deep insights with startling ease; the often-overlooked pathways to Self that are revealed are often beautiful and always true.” – F.H.

Drawing on the wisdom of experts such as Natalie Goldberg (Writing Down the Bones) and Julia Cameron (The Artist’s Way), learn how to use your journal (and mandala drawing too!) as a tool to unlock creativity, get the words  & ideas flowing, overcome fears and gain confidence in your own talents. And guess what? The techniques can be applied to help you out-write your everyday fears of risk and failure!
