“Writing is a communal act…Contrary to popular belief, a writer is not a Prometheus alone on a hill full of fire… It’s good to know some local people who are writing and whom you can get together with for mutual support…Kill the idea of the lone, suffering artist. We suffer anyway as human beings. Don’t make it any harder on yourself.” – Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones
I quote Natalie Goldberg A LOT. I especially love to rattle off the wise words above about the importance of writers having community. I believe in those words truly, fully, deeply. My belief in the importance of community is why I started See Jane Write.
On January 9, we will kick off the New Year with the See Jane Write Members Only Mixer. The purpose of this mixer is to help official members of See Jane Write get to know one another better and my hope is that they’ll find writing partners too. I hope each woman will find another woman who will encourage them to pursue their writing goals and projects and give them the support and feedback they need.
The event will feature an ice breaker game with door prizes as well as free food. Details regarding time and location will be provided in the invitation sent to members. If you don’t want to be left out, click here to sign up to become an official See Jane Write member today.
